Well, I'd be glad to have someone participate in the review on behalf
of the foundation. But we need to find someone, and that's the hard
part. So far, nobody has ever contacted us to do this.

What we can do is blog about it and ask on a few relevant mailing lists
to find someone. It makes sense, yes. But you don't need to be on the
board to do so :-)
