I have sent an email to Tuomas, but gotten no reply so far, and I hadn't
considered Jussi since he has some entries in the contest. Karoliina
certainly has qualifications... I am afraid I don't know Roope.

Indeed, I've been thinking about this. I guess I need to brainstorm a
bit more (perhaps on the IRC channel?) to get some names.

Thank you for the feedback in any case! And sorry for not getting back

infinite email backlog.
