In my personal opinion, people are just busy and leave things to the last minute.

Since I just wrote my statement after I got Chris' second email, I have first-hand knowledge there is at least one board candidate where that is true.

Repeating the call for candidates for the initial Board of Directors...

There are zero candidates as of now.  (Sun Nov 1 18:03:30 UTC 2015)

The sooner you get on the ballot, the better, so that folks with questions
about your goals or background, can reach out to you.
