I think Marc-Andre Lemburg he has really earned his place over the
decades.  He has always been polite and constructive and desires a
Eurovision-style block vote!

BTW I was once asked to be on the PSF board, when it was first set up,
and turned it down.  ReportLab was one of the earliest UK python shops
and I know all the old-timers (Guido, David Ascher etc) from the
earliest days.    Main reason was family commitments which prevented
attending events, and I have done bugger all for the community since
about 2006.  The good news is that kid #1 finishes exams forever in 2
weeks, and kid #2 finishes GCSEs in six weeks, at which point life
gets more manageable, and I hope to get out to a lot more community
events and conferences and start contributing again.    So if you are
really keen to have an extra nomination I wouldn't mind, but I am not
going to press for it either.
