Given the fact we're extremely short on time, and also that the 
likelihood of any of our candidates being picked is modest at best, I 
would be comfortable submitting Gaspar, Karin and Taran, all of whom I 
think would represent our interests quite well. My one concern is that 
we have not heard from either Gaspar or Karin, and I fear they may not 
come online before it is too late. Perhaps what we could do is this: I 
could contact the coordinator of the process, and see if it would be 
alright to offer their names tentatively, and explain that we are a 
brand new working group and only got the notice at the last minute, so 
we're still waiting to hear from Gaspar and Karin to confirm their 
interest. That way, we can throw their names into the hat rather than 
miss the hat entirely, but have the option to withdraw their names if 
they decline the nomination.

Would anyone have any objections to this? Or a better idea? Time is 
running very short...
