I think SLOBs needs to make the decision about membership (and even
whether or not to form the committee) but getting the names of
potential volunteers in advance is a very good idea. We may decide
that we need to draft a few community members that don't volunteer as
well, but I think this has been a topic that has enough interest and
passion associated with it that we shouldn't have a problem finding
