as the subject line here does, "Preference/Proposed…." and then go on in one sentence to
explain, "the names proposed derive from the overall committer list (or whatever) and are
those valued by the individual proposer. The final PMC list itself will likely change as the
project evolves and will be composed of those names suggested here." It could then clarify
who is able to propose names and stipulate a deadline.

That is easy enough to set up if you want to.  The posts to date in
this thread could easily be transcribed into such wiki.  This could be
done now, or at the end of Andrew's proposed one week.

Personally I don't have a strong preference for a wiki over the
mailing list.  Maybe it helps tie the loose threads together related
to this topic that a casual observer might not understand.  In any
case, no objections if you want to do this.
