This is how GNOME works; thus far the 'release team' has not gone bad,

Good suggestions, though I'd like a fixed number of ESC members too.

        On the contrary; I would like it flexible; so if RedFlag
joins, or IBM
joins, we can immediately offer them permanant representation (eg.)
rather than having to pick who to kick off ;-) or waiting for another
election cycle.

        Meritocracy is great, but a quiet, relational process works
rather well
too IMHO, and having a small group of people who can actually decide
things and work together effectively is really useful. 


May I ask here then, the term 'release team' is used above and this is a
question that has been on my mind for a few days.

I suppose this is a question specifically for Michael, but not
exclusively so. 

The ESC, do you see this as a very active group, for instance working as
the release team, meeting often and looking at individual issues?

Thanks much,
