Voting this way seems to discourage participation from people who  
can't come to meetings - which is a larger workforce the group can  
tap into. Can't we "meet" online somehow?

I really like the idea of a maintainer - and sub-maintainers. This  
project needs leadership or it will die by discussion. I think  
progress could move quickly if we had talented leads working with teams.

I don't personally like the idea of vote-by-email (because polls are  
made for... polling), but I don't really mind if we end up using it.  
It would be nice to have a UPHPU-vote list though so the vote emails  
don't end up mixed in with normal UPHPU or even UPHPU Framework
