Seems a good idea.

It doesn't work for the reasons you mention.

Until (unless?) you decide to change the Foundation membership rules,
you can use last voting officers. I've talked with rane and fox2mike
about starting a gentoo election project, which would be responsible
for keeping the election scripts. The team would update (tweak?) the
scripts as needed, but an infra member would still run the scripts -
no change on policy. The project would have a list of members that are
willing to be officers on elections and for any particular election a
subset of member would be chosen to run it. This election team could
also help coordinate or run elections for other teams - if asked to do
so.

- From the previous mails, my understanding is that the point about
membership to the Foundation is not to be discussed on this meeting,
but on a later date. Am I correct?
