True. We should do that for Debian as well, but I'm not in a hurry
there since Debian already works fine.

Help writing the chapter and of course being able to revoke the creation
of a new committee via a vote.

Have people from the membership volunteer and let the BOD make the final

Another quite common option is to select a leader and let him choose the
rest of the committee if you're forming a new committee. If a current
leader is replace a new leader is chosen by the BOD and the current
committee, with advise from the leaving leader.
