  i'm not opposed to dev-zero per se, but i think we've already gone too far 
  down the list. as i mentioned on the -council mailing list, more people 
  would have nominated themselves had they thought that not enough good 
  potential members were already there.

  dberkholz: *shrugs* ... we're still in the upper half of the list, 
  compared with the 2007 list i don't get where we're going to go too far 
  down.
[...]
20:32 <@dberkholz>
  dertobi123: you can also consider this a test of the voting system to 
  actually get things done fast enough so it doesn't delay council activity 
  at all.
[...]
20:33 <@dertobi123>
  dberkholz: i could, but i don't see why we shouldn't follow the steps 
  which worked in the past few years
[...]
20:34 <@dberkholz>
  dertobi123: because 5 of the council members would rather do something 
  else. =)
