Since no meeting, I also wanted to suggest that we clarify term limits.
The proposal says indefinite term, but that's not kosher IMHO.  I
thought we agreed on staggering terms, but I need to check my old IRC
logs from FDSCo meetings to see what exactly was decided.  I'm pretty
sure it didn't take into account, though, bypassing the vote taking and
simply placing nominees in FDSCo seats (as would happen in the event of
numCandidates < numSeats).
