[Numpy-discussion] Numpy governance update

If I can chime in as a newcomer on this list:

I don't think a conflict of interest is at all likely, but I can see
the point of those saying that it's worth thinking about this while
everything is going well. If any tension does arise, it will be all
but impossible to decide on a fair governance structure, because
everyone will root for the system that looks likely to produce their
favoured outcome.

It strikes me that the effort everyone's put into this thread could
have by now designed some way to resolve disputes. ;-) It could be as
simple as 'so-and-so gets to make the final call', through to
committees, voting systems, etc. So long as everything's going well,
it shouldn't restrict anyone, and it would reassure anyone who does
have concerns (justified or not) about conflicts of interest.

Thanks,
Thomas
