Yet you responded...

"Sounds like working with them has paid off nicely. Maybe you should do 
more of that."

Which indicates your realized that I was referring to FPC not FESCO or 
being hyperbolic.

Anyway working with them does not make the process going any faster 
since to me the FPC and it's concept is the bottleneck vs the open way 
of ack/nack/patch approach where you would have more participants and 
eyes on the guidelines changes including by the ones that already are on 

It seem to me that the reason people would not want this is because of 
their own lack of faith and trust in the community and Vít is right if 
we are going to "hang on" having FPC then the current members should be 
relieved from their duty and an open election held for their positions 
within the community.
