I would love to. Can you show me the 28 hour days so I have some extra
hours? :) 

Seriously tho, I think many of the FESCo folks _DO_ stay involved in
lots of things, some of them might not be as visible as people think
they would be. Or did you mean at some higher level?

I think move involvement wherever we can get it great, but I don't
think we should try and force people to do X hours of work on Y. 

Also, if we want to require fesco and/or the board to be more involved
and proactive, we should note these requirements for the next election. 

A possible idea for the next cycle: 

- Wait until we have the list of approved features. 
- Divide them up amoung fesco and have a 'point contact' for each that
  is a fesco member. 
- Each member is responsible for testing/tracking/talking to the
  feature owner and getting them what they need to get things done as
  well as knowing if something is not ready/etc. 

I don't know how feasible this is given the large list of features
