Right, and there's no need to be discouraged by lack of nominees.  We
have many, many translators who have made this the best-translated
release yet of Fedora.  Sometimes the steering committees aren't
needed as much to organize, direct, and decide as they are to simply
track work, identify barriers, and help get them removed.  Often in a
consensus atmosphere the F?SCo will simply be a collection of people
with an interest in these topics who are somewhat self-selecting.
That self-motivation is a healthy sign of community and as long as
translators are content with how things are going, we need not impose
artificial election processes on any particular group.
