Why don't we talk about it a bit first, before proposing many
different motions ?

I don't think that we should subject the appointment of the Technical
Committee to democratic vote.  The most popular people are often not
the most technically excellent, and what's required on the tech. ctte
is technical excellence.

Personally, I _want_ to appoint the technical committee, because I
feel I've been around long enough and seen enough of people that I
know who would be good.

But perhaps the developers don't trust me to do this.

(I've just realised: there's no mechnanism for throwing someone off
the technical committee.  I'll have to add one.)
