That's okay.  Most of my response are intended to get people to think.  I
don't often expect direct replies :).

and if they respond affermative, they still wish to be involved.  I'm
ambivilent to the requirments checking.

I'm thinking of voting and such...

Lets say we have 1000 people on the roles but, because of people
disappearing we have only 100 active people... or 100 active people who
will vote on any given issue, anyway.  Given Debian's voting rules, any
single choice would have to get 48 MORE votes than any other choice...

Otherwise the issue is unresolved.
