Johan Tibell also volunteered.

I should have said at the beginning that I was also volunteering, partly
as a communication link with the release team.

So that'd make 6 which is within 5 +/- 1 :-)

Does that all seem ok?

I should point out again that the steering committee is not intended to
have that much power when it comes to actual policy decisions, it's
there to make sure that we as a community actually do make decisions one
way or another on important policy issues affecting the platform.
Interest groups can make their arguments directly on the libraries
mailing list when issues are discussed.
