The two people I know who received awards were well aware
before the GG contacted them. The only requirement is that
the <honours committee> can independantly find a prominant
person to support the nomination. As such, it's a bad idea
to have all the prominent people sign the nomination. EG have
CLUG OR SLUG nominate, and leave them to locate a second
opinion (likely someone else from SLUG/CLUG.)

I does take several months, so start now for next year.
