As I recall it, after tha 100Days initiative was launched (by Quim) at
LinuxTag, the Community Council was one of the ideas. And it was
encouraged by Quim, prioritised as one of the 100Days goals (which we
achieved, just in time).

I'll agree that the idea came from community members, much of the debate
about the role & rules of the council was community-led, and setting up
the election software, and making sure the election happened, is
something I can claim some credit for, but it's unfair to understate
Quim's role in helping the council come about.

Also, the remit of the council depends in large extent on Nokia's
support - as in the hiring of the debmaster, for example.
