RE: [] Time for a run-off vote

I have a slightly different suggestion.


How about the EMO takes over from here? We are going to have to review these names for trademark, marketing and other issues. It is not as simple as just running a popularity contest J


So I suggest that the EMO takes a look at both of those names and decides.

Thanks for the applause :) but don't think we can use our own fatigue to call off a run off ... my concern is that we said we would have one, if there wasn't a clear majority, and I'd fear some may have based their voting behavior on that.

On the other hand, if you are saying, that you think the Planning Council should choose Indigo over Ion even if Ion won in a run-off vote ... well, then that'd be a different matter. And the PC could vote here on this mailing list if that was your motion.

I'm kinda with Doug on this one - I don't think we need a run-off. David
has expended a whole heap of effort in doing the right thing for this
yearly chore (applause for him) and we may as well call a halt.

We could do a PR system next year for Eclipse JimJams :)
