I am willing to serve as Chairman. I don't understand rowing
very much, but I get the impression that the rowers do most of
the work and the coxswain has a role in coordination and timing.
That is somewhat of how I understand my chairmanship -- I am
depending on the real Lisp experts to do a lot of the work to
make sure we keep on the right course.
If we are moving to vote on something we need a balloting
process. My next message to cl-steering will be a balloting
message. To vote, reply to that message. We should also set a
normal timing for ballots -- say at least a week and closing on
Tuesday night (that would take care of end-of-week, weekend, and
first-of-week types to all have a chance to see the ballot
message and respond. A ballot message should not have general
discussion, only information about the vote.
