Right now, it's okay for me. We probably need to ask some people if
they're okay to organize the reviews/bugs naggings (UI, accessibility,
i18n people, at least).

We can :-) Kjartan, what do you think?

I think all the details are there. Maybe it just needs some explanations
about what will probably fail (gstreamer configure, totem plugin, etc.)
if you don't change the default output.

I was planning to send a mail to each of the list that can do the work.
But we could announce it wider and see if more people are interested in
this, indeed. Sounds like a good plan.

It looks like there wasn't so many changes in the past. 1 year turnover
is too quick, I agree. It's difficult to define a good time for this (at
least for the little newbie I am). Another solution would be to write
something like "the members are not expected to stay more than x years
in a row (although it can happen) ?". Or just remove this.

I also don't know if it's hard to find new people for the team.

Don't know :-)
