I'm reading carefully through the TU bylaws, and I think they need some

> The addition of a TU may occur at any time.
> In order to become a TU, one must first find two sponsoring TUs following
the guidelines outlined below, and arrange privately with them

the announcement, standard voting procedure commences with a

Trusted User for a period of three months.

* It's unclear if the "arrange privately with them to announce their
candidacy" part is a requirement or not, but it seems like it is.
* It's unclear if "the announcement" starts when the candidate announces
it, or when two TUs have confirmed the sponsorship.
* It's unclear if "the announcement" is part of the "standard voting
procedure", and/or if the confirmation of sponsorship is part of the
"standard voting procedure".

Since the announcement of the candidacy was done without it having been
arranged privately (unless Sergej did this), I believe the current process
is void (but possible to start again later: the addition of a TU may occur
at any time).

Best regards,
