Looks quite all right, although we might want to extend the nominations
period with the weekend of 1 & 2 Dec (just in case). Weekends tend to
result in more input somehow, don't ask me why.

OTOH: I'm going to question the fact if we need a steering committee
anyway. Basically I was stunned when I read that famsco has a meeting
twice a year. I don't get the point of it then anymore. If this be the
case, then we might want to look at two or maybe three people per region
who are the main contacts for that particular reason and these people
get together in whatever famsco should be doing. I might be terribly
wrong about this still.

To be honest here, I had too look up [1] who was serving on famsco
(except Thomas and Francesco), because I had no idea.
