Dear all:

First of all (I may not be aware of the procedures here, but you'll
tell me), do we have a structure for the bureau that will conduct the
work of the TF, or is it up to Marilyn to design the structure (she
first suggested herself as co-/vice chair)? I think we need to know
what are the positions to fill before nominating people.

Second, whether Marilyn addresses David's concerns or not, we know
enough to see that her profile is too much and tightly interwoven
with versatile business/commercial interests that may at any given
time interfere with the business we are dealing with here, and which
though _legitimate_, makes it difficult for me to expect from her or
anyone in her shoes to be neutral and fairly balanced as a chair
should reasonably be. Thus, I oppose her (self-)nomination, either as
chair or co-/vice chair or whatever on the bureau. I think we have
enough capable people in the TF that are consensual enough to spare
ourselves lenghty debates on this.
Thank you,

P.S. May be calling in late to the first TF meeting, have to see a
doctor an hour before the time scheduled for the meeting so I'm
sending this for my position to be known if you had to make any
decision before I join in.
