Who knows? Just give it a try, maybe new people will show up.

And as mentioned in another mail: I think it's fine and actually a good
thing if some of the current members try to get into the Committee again
-- a bit fresh blood might be enough to get things into a better shape.

And the last reorganization of the Steering committee iirc was a year
ago, so IMHO it's time for another one, as committees like Board and
FESCo do elections once a year as well (and no, I don't want to say that
we need a election; I'm actually not even sure if it's better with or
without one).
