I do not see the time frame for defining an electorate there.

PTL seats are completely renewed every 6 months. A separate election is 
run for
each project team. These elections are collectively held 5 weeks prior 
to each
design summit, with nominations due 6 weeks prior to the summit and 
held open for no less than five business days.

The way the rules are currently worded if the extra ATC patch merged
before the deadline for PTL nomination anyone in that patch would be 
able to run.

Where do we define the cut off date for electorate definition?
