This sounds like a good number.

Sound like a very good idea, if you want to enter FESCo, you must have a 
clear idea of there you want it to go and
how you can contribute to make it go there.

I don't think a vote is necessary, it  is  more  important to  get some 
members there:

1. Want the job :-))
2. Have something to offer. ( Get some work done).
3. Have some clear ideas about where Extras should go in the future.


1. The current FESCo decides a number of member in the future.
2. The current FESCo should find out who want to stay and who want to leave.
3. People who want to get in should write a mission statement on this 
list, people can then comment on the candidates.
4. The current FESCo then decides what new member to include.

2. -  4. can be repeated every half year.

By the way, I think that the current FESCo have done a great job, for 
the community.
