We already have the problem that people don't like the Steering Committee
and the way decisions are made in the GNOME project because the steercom
basically has all the power right now without being elected.

So just moving over the steercom is a non-issue here and we'll offend
even more people with it.

We need to do a real vote and there need to be more than one slate.
