Well, we just maintain the status quo. No one has decided and approved
that FAmSCo should be discontinued, so having elections is just
continuing in what we have until we decide otherwise.

I don't know whether keeping FAmSCo alive is the right solution or not,
but what I know is that nothing can be worse than current situation and
electing new members who would at least properly maintain the status
quo is the easiest and quickest way out of it. I currently have close-
to-zero time for FAmSCo and I still am one of the more active members
of the committee, I'd say. I haven't heard from some members for
months. Our replacement is at least one year overdue.
