Personally, I can't really imagine anyone having objections against 
sofar taking the role of lunar linux leader.

We don't have a social contract or a constitution, like another unnamed 
community project, so perhaps we could just have an irc dev meeting and 
agree to elect sofar.

If there is to be an election we need other candidates as well. Would 
anyone else want the position? That would be a good reason to vote.
