Incidentally, who is actually active in the steering committee? I see
(if I interpreted correctly) Duncan and Thomas had the great advantage
of getting to meet and discuss in person. I'm a silly U.S. person
without much travel money at present, and a sleep schedule that means
I'm asleep during European business hours. If this makes me a less
effective committee member I could withdraw from that title, or y'all
could advise me on how to be more effective, or whatever. I feel okay
about the current situation though (just wanted to hear what it is from
your perspective). We exercise direction; we don't exercise authority.
So, as long as it's a consistent direction.
My e-mail records suggest that when we formed the committee in July
2009, it consisted of:
Thomas Schilling <nominolo at googlemail.com>
Iavor Diatchki <iavor.diatchki at gmail.com>
Adam Wick <awick at galois.com>
Johan Tibell <johan.tibell at gmail.com>
Duncan Coutts <duncan.coutts at worc.ox.ac.uk>
Isaac Dupree <ml at isaac.cedarswampstudios.org>
(The wiki has this info too - hopefully it will be back online soon.)
It was based on volunteers; there no worries about succession or
anything; we got about the number of volunteers we hoped for.
Hmm, I looked back on the mailing-list, just to get one sort of
perspective from the last few months -- Adam hasn't posted much -- I
realized I maybe haven't posted very much until this week, although I
have been reading the libraries@ discussions -- Iavor's also posted
some; and Johan, Duncan, and Thomas have definitely been involved in the
libraries & platform discussions.
