my mail about patenting numbers was a mis-post that was meant for
discussion@, not fsfe-ie at .  Anyway, about this committee...

The most important thing for me is to have the least possible seperation
between committee and members.  By having just 3 people, the committee
and members will have to work together, committee-only discussion would
be pretty pointless, and we get an open organisation.

That's my main hope, but the other hope is to spend more time working on
FS than on debating details.

And that includes this debate, so list:
a: go with the three?
Or go to 
b: 5 or 
c: 6?
(If b or c, please list names so we can get this done quickly)

If consensus forms on a committee, we'll go with it.  I'm not married to
the number three, it's just my preference.
