Technical Summary

  RFC 3777 defines the Nominations and Recall Committee's operation, and
  includes a sample timeline for major steps in the NomCom process that
  meets the minimum normative requirements for the process.  Recent
  NomComs have been scheduling based on the sample timeline, and the
  chairs of the last three NomComs, Danny McPherson (2004-2005), Ralph
  Droms (2005-2006), and Andrew Lange (2006-2007) have all reported that
  this timeline is very aggressive and have all suggested starting
  earlier.  This document restructures the sample timeline, but makes no
  normative process changes.

  document, but earlier that previous years.
