How should we move forward with this? One idea might be to follow the same
path as we did with OSGF membership. The TSC prepares a RFC to transition
the TSC to PSC with all the stuff about scope, new membership and so on
and we vote. But acceptance would be contingent on confirming vote from
the community at large. Just a thought.

I agree with the latest sentiments. My opinion would to broaden the power of the TSC by 
transitioning into a PSC (I don't think a second committee would add much), and  we 
broadening membership to include power and/or other influential users (folks Lowell Flak and
Ed McNierney also come to mind in addition to those already mentioned).

I could see a membership approaching 13 folks...

Agreed, and agreed. (That's also in line with what Howard suggests in 
his reply that just arrived)

BTW, another question that this proposal raises is how big do we want 
the committee to become. I thought it was better to keep it relatively 
small, at which point would it become too big and unmanageable?
