    While I agree that the list of priorities does not include the
expected input to be truly considered to represent MOTU priorities, I
very much disagree that the process for role transfer is in any way related.

    More specifically, while we have a fairly detailed process by which
people join or leave some of our delegated teams (motu-sru,
motu-release), we have not historically used this process for transfer
of MOTU Leaders, including transfers since the adoption of this process
for the delegated roles.

    So, if there is a desire to have this process affect the singleton
MOTU Leaders as well as the delegated teams, this change should be
raised for review and discussion separately from the criticism of our
new LP liaisons' prioritisation choices.
