That is a good suggestion. I like this being a result of a group voting,
it gives legitimacy to the process. In addition, a 1-3 or 1-5 range
would give us a more granular vision than just a +1 or -1, like we
currently do in subsidy meetings.

I would like to hear the opinions and experiences of other FAmSCo
members in order to improve this process. A meeting ticket was opened
for that.
