Hi all,

one issue with TAG elections is that there is very little opportunity 
(if any at all) for the community to talk to candidates before the vote 
takes place. Were that to happen, the AC representatives could be better 
informed before casting their ballot (either by directly following the 
discussion, or from someone in their organisation doing so).

I therefore think that it would be a good idea for candidates to have a 
venue to publicly state what they believe the TAG should and what they 
would do on the TAG, as well as to answer general questions from the 
community. This could have the additional advantage of feeding into the 
TAG's own understanding of overall priorities and problems.

Having discussed this informally here and there, it seems that rather 
than creating a new list for that (which would have to gain subscribers, 
be read by the TAG, etc.) it would be simpler to just use www-tag.

So my question is, without deep-diving into electoral details: would 
people here be happy if we were to invite candidates in the upcoming TAG 
election to post their priorities and plans here, as well as answer 
questions the community might ask of them? I wouldn't anticipate that it 
would translate to massive amounts of traffic, but I do think that what 
traffic it would generate would be high quality.
