I am sorry that I rushed to conclusions. There is no need to remove
anyone from FAmSCo. I have reviewed the attendance and FAmSCo meetings
have reached quorum most of the time without any problem.
I really sorry that I have write things that where not properly
evaluated before proposed to the list.
