To be honest, that's something we (myself as a member of the Board, and
Ryan) have been discussing over the past couple of weeks. I would think
that it does need to be discussed, but I don't think that I agree with
Ryan's assertion that a "technical board" is needed. I poked holes in
his proposal, and I'm sure we'll discuss it more in private before
putting the results forward for discussion within the community.

I would hope it doesn't give a mandate, as the proposals seem hazy at
best right now.

I'd also be interested in knowing that :)
