Given the current situation, I think we'll get any help we can. I'd be happy to
add Sean and a couple of other volunteers to the core team until the end of the
cycle. When Pike is out, we can do a status check and see how to proceed.

I'd like to start working on a more formal proposal for this. The email threas
have covered some interesting points and there have been a good number of
sessions at various summits about this same argument.

There could be another session in Denver but I'd like to see a more formal
document, etherpad, whatever, that explains the different features that would
make the migration worth it and a set of different paths we could explore to
make this migration happen. With this info, I think we will be able to make a
thoughtful decision.
