Doesn't look draconian, good ;)

This whole thing has obviously taken rather long, and it's good that  
we're getting started. Thanks for doing this first membership- 
constituting step.

I would go ahead and suggest a date maybe a month in the future from  
your initial invitation email. IMHO that is enough time for everyone  
to read 2.5 pages and get it back to the foundation, even by snail mail.

For fairness' sake, there could be a short comment period (maybe 1  
week) for the election date, in case voters come up with a valid  
reason to change it.
