That is one of the things the Committee was originally Set up for.

Hmm... The least active members (in descending order of activity) are:
Ian Jackson, Klee Dienes and Guy Maor. If Idon't hear from anyone in
the next week, I'll make a point to try and contact that person by phone
to make sure they're interested in putting time into this part of the
project, and to make sure they're receiving email properly.

Sure: I respect Bdale.
I'll formally propose we "recommend" him to you in my next message.
More generally, I'd like any committe member who has in mind someone
they think should be on the committee to speak up. I wonder if we
can interest Wichert?
