Interesting comment, albeit somewhat over the top. Do remember that with
the last FESCo "election" primarily we just filled vacant seats in a very
half-hearted and controversial way. Before the next election a lot must
happen. The FE developer community needs means to measure whether they are
happy with the elected representatives. That is not possible when FESCo's
decision-finding process is not documented, when some FESCo members either
abstain from voting often or always [or because they are absent from a
high number of public meetings], and when this leads to sort of anonymous
FESCo decisions (where only with high effort or luck you find nothing more
than a few +1/-1 votes in meeting-minutes).

At the topic of FESCo, just a few days ago I was surprised that I could
not find the FESCo members' mission statements anymore. It turned out the
page was deleted without any (or without an easy-to-find) replacement:
