given the thread's development as an example, I think less people with
faster communication and decision making time is better, otherwise you
may end up like Debian where important decisions are stalled by
endless threads ("less" as an absolute measure, I'm not comparing to
any specific number like 17 or 9).

If there is fear of too high workload per person then some work
activities of fesco should be checked whether they belong

If fesco feels on some specific issue at hand that it is too small in
numbers to make a decision it can always escalate to the next larger
entity to get more opinions like it is happening now.
