What sort of vote?  Quorum,  two-thirds?

> Actually, should the committee have an official membership? 
Yes.  If a comittee is going to "be responsible for the day-to-day running
of SPI" (i.e.,  they're going to make day-to-day descisions on behalf of
the company),  we may eventually end up in legal trouble if there's no one
who is officially responsible.

On the same tack,  should committees be required to hold discussion on
publically-available lists?  I understand that in some cases this simply
isn't an option,  but in many cases it might be best if all committee
discussions were done in front of the world.  Maybe a list for the
committee which only the committee can send to,  but everybody can read?
