This is a good point, and mentioned on the page at some point: "The
committee represents the community as a whole" -- could be emphasized
more. I'm not sure how feasible and efficient would be to have it as a
mandate for FLSCo members; maybe we should leave it open, and remind
everyone (both now and before the vote) that one important aspect of a
good FLSCo would be to represent the whole community.
Reason to join FLSCo #143: We have enough budget set aside to try hard
and have all FLSCO members in Brussels for FOSDEM '09.
