We have a constitution of rules for the association. We may perfectly
update these to properly handle such a case, but before that, it would
reinforce these if we stick to them. It's not about being overly
bureaucratic, but indeed, I find there's an issue here:
 - do they get a seat at the board, because there's room to fill or
because they are elected into it? that's pretty different;
 - if the former reason is true, how could the board prevent an
unwanted candidate to join? (I have nothing against the candidates
here, it's a question about our constitution design).

Now, on the technical/setup bit: if managing epoll is too
complex/cumbersome, shall we consider alternative/existing platforms
for that? or advertise/sponsor further development so it's a matter of
"new poll" > "name" > "who can vote" > "proposals" > "deadline" >
"start" clicks to set it up?
