How about not copy other governing structures try a new approach ;)

It's better, more fairer and efficient, to no be voting et all but 
simply make up the server WG with representatives from each sub 
community as in one of each from these groups 
documentation,ambassadors,qa,releng,marketing,design,website and the 
rest from the server community and have them chose within themselves who 
will be representing on their behalf and for how long.

Once we as in the initial group members are happy about the 
transformation process from server application to server "product" from 
all angles of the related communities as in 
doc,qa,releng,ambassadors,marketing,website,design and server and have 
successfully pushed through several products through that process ( to 
try and tested it ), we step down and let the new governing structure 
take over.
