FWIW, size-wise, the standard 5 person council which includes a chair
who can break ties in votes has worked very well for other teams.
It's still small enough to not be a bureaucratic hassle, but tends to
give good representation of the community, healthy discussions with
several viewpoints that hold official weight and doesn't put strain on
the council time-wise - in a 5 person council, it's ok if two members
are unavailable, quorum can still be met so decisions can be made and
the project moved forward.
Hope this helps.
 when taking into account absences and people abstaining, a 5
member council can have ties.
