I think that the developers would probably elect whoever you nominated.

It isn't a matter of trust, it's a matter of involvement. We would trust
you to run Debian single-handed, but if you don't give the developers a

as the choice of technical committee members you may soon find yourself
doing so. The developers won't quit: they'll just leave all the decisions
