What role will a council lead play? Will the role be similar to the speaker of the house (ie, only manage the meetings and cast the tie-breaking vote), or more like the head of the cabinet of ministers (take the final decision based on input from other members)? -- ~Nirbheek Chauhan Gentoo GNOME+Mozilla Team
