> I would thus like to make two proposals.

> 1. We select the two candidates as above, in my opinion with Vincent in the two-year tenure and Darwin in the one year tenure. By consensus if possible.


I have no opinion on this one way or the other. Since it seems to have general support of the community, I have no opposition to this proposal.

> 2. Given that the next meeting is two months from now, I would like to propose that we measure these tenures as from "this year" such that the effective tenures will be one and two years respectively from now, and not "puppet" and "one year" effectively.


I am no more eager than anyone else to repeat this process in two months. However, making this change to the tenure at this time is premature
and outside the rules. Once we have co-chairs, a simple call for community consensus to extend their terms under section 3.6 seems like the
expedient process. However, I will point out that since such a call would create a conflict of interest for the co-chairs in question, we would need
to seek alternate co-chairs to evaluate the consensus of the community around doing so. There are provisions for this in the CPM IIRC, and we
can appoint interim chairs at the meeting to handle this particular matter.
