I think that this is too short a notice considering that it is Christmas

I have just signed the list.

We would need 35 to 40 signatures to put this to vote, as Behdad said.

My reason for signing up is mainly that critic in order to make
improvements within the GNOME project itself are best done in private
before the result is made public on the public list.

A list for members only would also make it more attractive for new
contributors to decide to become Foundation Members.

Remember only GNOME Foundation Members should be able to be part of a
consensus decision, and only Foundation Members can vote in elections
and referendums.
