But we never limited the choice to a arbitrary subset of the possible candidates. And I think it would be good for Afrinic to do the same.
Ultimately the choice and power belongs to the community who vote, and the same community who can discuss this issue and change the criteria if it deems it necessary.
I think it is healthy that this issue was brought up and discussed and consensus to me seems clear that we want to have members with a level of substance beyond bytes and bits or bits and bytes.
