It's a bit too late now as the list is created already. Also, we are talking here about the initial BoT which is meant to embody the NFP in the beginning. We can talk about numbers later. We can talk about voting later on as well. Nothing is set in stone that a normal majority is required, we can very well opt for a 2/3 majority in which case 12 is an ideal number (8-4). There's also no point in telling why "foo" should be in the initial BoT and not "bar"; we have over 200 developers, a discussion would lead to centuries of e-mailing. Once again, this is an initial board meant to speed up things. The real elections and such will be held later when everything is settled. Wkr, Sven Vermeulen -- ^__^ And Larry saw that it was Good.
