We do self-nomination (people who want to run nominate themselves)
because then you don't have to go through the painful step of
*confirming* candidates (people may not agree to run).

If you want to make it "like OpenStack" it should be all Savanna recent
authors (last year), as given by git. Maybe the infra team could even
give you a list of emails for use in CIVS.

I think (a) would work well.
