Let's keep the focus on nominations at the moment. By 10 January, we 
need the list of nominees and their acceptance/refusal to run. In the 
last days before 10 January, I'll solicit from all nominees until then 
(and then I'll ask for it to all further nominees) a public 
acceptance/refusal, which should be accompanied by a brief statement.

This is the principle, and we will find an effortless way to put it in 
practice. For sure, we will have a first round where all nominees can be 
voted (and this will happen in public on the dev list). After that 
round, if no candidates obtain the majority of binding votes, we will 
have to have a run-off indeed. The least voted candidate will be 
removed, others will be able to choose whether to run again or not. 
Realistically, we will be done with a couple rounds, maybe three.

But until the time comes I prefer that we focus on nominations.
