[IAEP] SoaS: Searching for Decision Panel volunteers.

Hi all,

Sebastian Dziallas has asked for clarity on how the SoaS distribution
he maintains is going to be treated and considered by SL.  It doesn't
seem that there's consensus, so we suggest forming a Decision Panel:

   On the rare occasion of a contentious issue on which no general
   consensus can be reached, the Oversight Board is responsible for
   convening a Decision Panel. The Oversight Board will be responsible
   for determining when a Decision Panel is required and for selecting
   members for the Decision Panel. Members of the Oversight Board are
   not permitted to serve on a Decision Panel. A Decision Panel will
   solicit community input, discuss (in private if they deem it
   necessary), reach a conclusion internally, and produce a report
   documenting their conclusion. (Anyone may submit advice to a
   Decision Panel.) The Oversight Board will review and ratify
   Decision Panel reports.

This mail is to ask for volunteers for the Decision Panel.  Volunteers
can be anyone with an interest in the outcome, and the Oversight Board
will then vote on (a) whether to convene the panel, (b) who should be
on the panel, and probably (c) what the decision being paneled is.  :)

Please volunteer by replying to this mail if you're interested, and
please do so by Thursday September 24th so that we can run the vote
at the Friday September 25th SLOBs meeting.
