We are too small to have a council. We have a core team, which is  
responsible for planning. Right now, I don't believe we need any more  
teams :)

At the moment, we don't have a democratic way of electing project leads,  
and I don't think we should have either for a while. Again, because we are  
too small, there are too few people to choose between, but if we can grow  
a bit larger, I would want to see democratic elections in the future.
Scott has been less active lately, which is quite ok. But he is the lead.  
And he will leave his position when he's good and ready :)
