Hi everyone,

Back in January we had a thread[1] about modifying how the Technical
Committee members[2] are selected, in order to cope with future expected
growth in the number of projects. Unfortunately there wasn't enough time
to properly discuss it before we had to look into incubated projects
graduation and setting up the Spring elections, so we decided to
postpone this to the Havana cycle.

To kick off this second attempt, we had an interesting session at the
Design Summit where various goals were discussed and various solutions
proposed and compared. I summarized the current state of affairs on the
wiki at:


I'd like everyone interested with this discussion to have a look at this
page. If you see goals that we missed, please suggest them on the thread
here, along with how well each currently-proposed solution would score
against it. Same if you think some model was not scored fairly against
existing stated goals. Finally, if you have an alternate model which
you'd like to suggest, feel free to do so. I'll keep the wiki page
updated based on the ML discussion.

Hopefully we can all come up with a generally-consensual model able to
handle future growth of the project.
