You're an optimist, I would think that there are at most a few dozen
interested people in Debian. But yes, in theory you could have as many
member as there are DD's (assuming that the membership would be
limited to DD's only).

Well, now I'm being optimist, but I would think that a vote to replace
a member would happen a lot less often than a (yearly) election.

FWIW, I'm for a group of people taking an active role in tackling our
social problems. I'm just not sure if an elected committee is the best
way of doing that.
