     52There will be a short period in which open nominations for new committee members will be solicited from the community on the [email protected] mailing list.  Self-nominations are allowed, and existing committee members can put themselves forward for the following year's committee, provided they don't serve more than two years in succession.
     53
     54Following nominations, the existing committee will choose the core of a new committee, consisting of up to 10 members, up to 2 of whom are editors.  Further committee members may be appointed by the core committee during the following months leading up to the committee discussion, based on the need for expertise in areas related to important proposals (which may in some cases mean appointing the proposer themselves, at the discretion of the committee).
