Sometime later, and after a bug-fix to our ability to make polls (thanks,
Ian), I've set up a poll for the three names proposed so far, for rotating
the chair, or for no chair at all.  The poll should run for 28-29 March,
but I don't know what timezone the server thinks it's in so I don't know
exactly when it will start.

AFAICT, the voter management is currently by a cookie value only, so the
results should be anonymous to us.

It seems the poll isn't visible before it starts, but since we all have
equal access to the poll machinery, you can tweak the poll up to (and
possibly during and maybe even after) when it runs by editing it at
