AIUI, it is *customary* for the TC Chair to step down when there is
any change in the TC composition, but it is not *required*. I don't
think you are overstepping by staying Chair.

Given nobody has asked for a change, that you were reelected by
unanimity, and that we are very close to the end of our terms, I do
not think there is much point in re-appointing you just to repeat the
exercise in less than three months.
