IMO, considering the small number of core developers active at this point, we might even go with a committee of 3, since 5 might be half of the active team... I'd suggest everyone does a list of the people he'd like to see on that board. After a certain time, we will vote. The 3 guys with the most votes "win", if they are interested to form the board.
Additionally, we should nominate 2 locums.

IMO, it isn't wrong to propose long time contributors who aren't too active anymore for this board, since this would shrink the chance of them being biassed. People immediately coming to mind for this are Meuuh and Sam.

Best regards,
