It's certainly good news (even if I was aware of it before this email).
But I have one immediate concern..

Being a board member, of a political organization, I'm familiar with the
dynamics of filling committees and boards to represent the varied
interests of the members. And I worry that, AFAICT, the above misses the
rather important demographic of:

* The people that are highly active in the community but can't come to
the conference because of various reasons. In my case for economic
reasons, but for others it's geographic reasons, etc.

* The people from non-US locales.

Hopefully you will consider ways of including the diverse Boost
population as time goes on. Anyway, good news to hear :-)
