If I'm not elected, I will still be working on all of the things I
mentioned in my nomination email (docs, encouraging participation from
folks who are <100% upstream, identifying new leaders and helping them
up their game, etc.) [1].

Regardless of the outcome of the election, I will be looking for
help with those things from everyone else who is running. We need a
leader for the proposed welcoming SIG [2], in particular.
