I completely agree with this, it is usually around election time 
(often just after) that we think about these things but making a 
change for the impending election is too quick.  I like Thierry's 
suggested schedule and I like the target of 9.  I do not have a strong 
preference for getting to 9 in 2 vs 4 cycles (2 at a time vs 1 at a 
time).  As has been mentioned elsewhere (IRC?) having an even number 
should not be an issue, looking back I can recall only one vote where 
it might have been a problem and in that case since it was clear we 
did not have consensus the plan was dropped anyway.  FWIW, StarlingX 
had an even number of members on its Technical Steering Committee (TC 
equivalent) for two cycles and it has not been a problem for basically 
the same reason, when driving for even close consensus you generally 
do not get ties.I agree even numbers are not a problem. I don't think (hope?)the existing TC would merge anything that went 7-6 anyway.I agree with the idea here to reduce the TC number. I think even number make more sense to have balance between both elections. We can reduce it gradually with target of 11 or 10 as of now and depends on future situations we can decide for more lower number.-gmann// jim
