Best thing would be to have a Steering Committee instead of one person, and find
a way these persons be chosen under meritocracy [1].

To ensure continuity, in the recent Docs elections, the four top vote receivers
serve on FDSCo for a larger period of time (say, 12 months) than the next three
vote receivers (6 months). This way we make sure active members on the FDSCo but
also a continuity of involvement. Maybe this is a good idea for a FEuSCo (Fedora
Europe Steering Committee).

I suggest we expand on the Draft to have a much clearer image on what the
proposal actually proposes. As I noted in Chitlesh's talk, Europe has some very
important characteristics (locality, multilinguality, different laws) that we
should make sure the new "Fedora Office" will strategically address.

Is there a compelling reason we should rush to do it before Linuxtag '07?
