Don't you see that we want to end that?

For the initial setup, I would like to have people in the core team
that are ok by both Matthias and the people who brought this to the
tech ctte (e.g. you). If that doesn't work out, we'll of course decide
who is in the core team. I think that's reasonable.
For further changes, it's the task of the core team to setup an
procedure how to do that.
