Sounds good.
So what about the following timelines:
Oct 1: Deadline for people to come up with proposals of governance model,
candidates, and how to vote
Dec 1: Deadline to choose a governance model, (and if possible, we choose
the new leader(s) too)
Jan 1: Deadline to choose the new leader(s), if not already chosen by Dec 1.
