This is possible, but honestly, the number of folks that are foundation
members far exceeds what we see on IRC. I double IRC topic is going to
impact much.

I do think that orgs should send emails to their employees getting them
to vote. Hitting quorum is pretty important. The block vote concerns
should be less on this go around than just getting people out voting for
whatever reason so we can actually move the ball forward here.
