The original was:
  - name: 'TC Campaigning'
    start: '2017-10-09T23:59'
    end:   '2017-10-12T23:45'

but that needed to be adjusted (https://review.openstack.org/509654/)

While that was still the same duration it was mid-week.

I can't find anything that documents how long the nomination period
needed to be, perhaps I missed it?  So we could do this but it's already
quite short.  So more likely we could just extend the Campaigning period
if that's the consensus.

The whole election takes close to 3 weeks of officials time so I'd like
to ask we be mindful of that before we extend things too much

Yours Tony.
