I specifically avoided the term leader because that role can be shared
and is only responsible for ensuring the team complies with the
request that all Ubuntu teams write monthly reports.

My point was that we should use theirs as we are part of Ubuntu. In my
opinion and observations of the team there are not enough active
contributors to have a whole separate bureaucracy to the main Ubuntu

I'm struggling to come up with a role that actually requires
elections. My idea of community is about empowerment of anyone willing
to contribute not just a small few. My only comment there was that if
we had to have them then the criteria already exists in the Ubuntu
governance by utilising the Ubuntu Membership team as voting parties.
