Eric and Marten have only been members with commit rights for 6 months,
While they have been contributing and very valuable to the project for
significantly longer, I do think this it is a bit to short time to be
considered for the steering council.
I certainly approve of them becoming members at some point, but I do
want to avoid the steering council to grow to large to quick as long as
it does not need more members to do its job.
What I do want to avoid is that the steering council becomes like our
committers list, a group that only grows and never shrinks as long as
the occasional heartbeat is heard.

That said if we think the current steering council is not able to fulfil
its purpose I do offer my seat for a replacement as I currently have not
really been contributing much.
