It was my impression after reading that, that we could have any team 
structure we wanted.  Ubuntu just wants us to designate an official 
contact person, and we can have whatever structure we want.  So, let's 
have a team coordinator who will have a leadership role and be the contact 
person for Ubuntu LoCo.  Since the LoCo principles are still in flux I'd 
say we should start with 6 months and refer to the person as interim, and 
try to figure out a smoother way to do this next time.

Keep the dates on the wiki intact, I think.
