That is not part of my yes, please don't get me wrong here :-) I was 
just thinking a step further and making suggestions for afterwards. If 
all step back first, then we can discuss and _vote_ for a 
system/rules/government/name it, that most of all developers want. Even 
if that vote would be not my choice, i'd life with it and accept it and 
still join in. That is just my sense of democracy. The number of 
maintainers, committers, leaders, that is all discussable, but not 
pushing things through without a vote. Therefore, whatever is, i have to 
vote Yes.
