> The changes include:
> * There is no set number of people on the committee, just a requirement
> that global FOSS4G chairs/co-chairs make up more than 50% of the committee.
> * Major decisions will have a minimum of 1 week for people to vote to try
> and ensure there is sufficient time for most (if not all) committee members
> to vote.
> * A number of other minor tweaks to the text.
> Note: We currently have 11 global foss4g chair/co-chairs on the conference
> committee. Based on proposed rules, we have space for 10 more people on the
> committee (totaling 21). We currently have 16 members  listed.
> Jeroen, Helena, you both recently volunteered to step down from the
> committee. I'm hopeful that you might reconsider and rejoin.
