[LGM] voting process for the lgm 2018

Similarly to what Ale has said, I feel that the discussion has already
occurred, and the proposal has already received the blessing of the
organizers from the lack of negative feedback during the course of that
discussion. Given that, I think that the most important thing is to
maximize the number of votes (all of which I would expect to be yes votes,
given the complete lack of other options) to build a strong mandate for the
event. That end is best reached by a community-wide vote.

I formally propose the following question for a vote by the full LGM
community for a week starting Monday.

Shall the Libre Graphics Meeting organization accept the proposal submitted

It would be helpful if we had multiple affirmative replies here. If it all
looks good, I'll set up the Etherpad by Monday.
