There is a huge role for the community in this project, and that role is
going to grow. At this stage, Eben has a vision, and he is marshalling
resources to achieve it. That vision involves a lot of community
conversation and guidance. Maybe that conversation leads to elected
positions (personally, I would like that).
Right now we're just trying to put a team together that can lead the
discussion on technical and administrative decisions. Once that team is
in place, we're going to hand the reigns to them and let them conduct
project governance as they see fit. We're not going to dictate the
governance model, although we will choose people who agree with our
vision of this being a community project.
