It's true that the committee has been very inactive, but this is
largely due to us not having been called on - although we have had had
a couple of ideas to make ourselves more visible, and it is perhaps
a failure on our part to get some of those done.

If there are good people we should be appointing then room should
indeed be made for them. Do you, Ben, have any suggestions ?
I think Raul's suggestion of Wichert is an excellent one. What do you
