I can serve as chair if nobody else volunteers.

We've considered this question a bit more on the board side, and think
we can adjust the policy enough to allow some flexibility around the

between the modulesets and the group, but it doesn't have to be
absolute and we could have a lazy retirement policy - so a modules
that are removed from the modulesets can stick around in the Gitlab
group for a good period of time. Does that sound like it could work?

I'm not sure. We have ~400 repositories under GNOME/ but only ~50 elements under core. So over 85% of our modules in GNOME/ are not in core. We could reduce that percentage by including elements from core-deps and sdk that are hosted under GNOME/, but there's still going to be very wide divergence. For there to be any sort of alignment, we'd need to remove the vast majority of software currently under GNOME/. The advantages of doing this would be unclear.
