Having a team vote about members of the team can be problematic,

For example if one member votes against another, it wont help
team spirit and social relations.

also a "comittee" which makes decissions affecting a larger group
should be made of members fairly choosen from that group.
"all active FFmpeg developers and contributors",  or
"all FFmpeg developers and contributors" or ...
i think this was the intend of the initial choice, and i hope that it
will continue to be true in the future
