This was brought up in a recent council meeting as well. I just haven't
had a chance to write up an email to the list since I've been on
2 ideas were presented:
1) Have someone else that those powers can be delegated to (a co-lead or
2) If 2 QA members rule for suspension of access, then it is done.
#2 seems to alleviate any bottlenecks that could happen. What does
everyone else think? This can wait until after whatever is decided with
the election, but the conversation should take place regardless.
