I guess this is another possible fork in models. Personally, I think
if the steering committee is independent of any specific regional
foundation, it should be picked to represent code constituencies, not
geographic constituencies. I don't think we should set aside a given
quota of seats for each continent for instance. Even if the steering
committee is separate from the board of the (US), it should not be
seen as in any way representing the regional foundations.

I've never heard of LI do anything but issue press releases about
itself, so I don't think that is a good model to follow.
