Sorry, working from mobile device while travelling. I proposed creating a
board like structure and formalising shepherd role. Very similar to Chris'
proposal but leaving overhead with IPMC rather than moving to board.

Hehe - fair comment. I was thinking, for example, of BlueSky - the archives
show my concern that was ignored and ultimately shown to be right. A
counter example is OpenMeetings who addressed my concerns, came back and
graduated quickly and smoothly. I'm not suggesting its always possible to
get it right, but I do think we can be more rigorous in general.
