I agree with your proposal. Infact there is just little time between
the moment a council member start to understand how the whole thing
works and the moment he need to leave.

Personally I don't know if I'll propose my candidature again... not
because I wasn't elected when I proposed it, but just because I'm
really enjoying working in Python Maemo team and I would prefear to
spend my free time contributing with pieces of code more than managing
organizative and bourocratic stuff.

You guys are really doing a good job and I'm happy with this council,
so for me is an OK, continue until you want :)

p.s: (just a "crazy" idea) what would you think about reserving a spot
in Maemo Council for women? Yes, I know that womens in this kind of
stuff are rare just like non-corrupted politicians (well... at least
here in Italy, don't want to offend any other nation :) ) but the ones
who work in IT are very valid and skilled, so why don't we try to
promote them and involve more in the Maemo community?
