I prefer the second one (expand the team temporarily to 9 members).
This way I can get some basic guidance and potentially assign myself
to some real tasks before 2.22 so that I can be at "full power" and
really contribute to the team in the beginning of the 2.23/2.24
development cycle. Also we would still have Elijah as a r-t member
until 2.22.
