I would like to request Jaijit/Venky, since they have played a key role
historically on this issue, to 'sum up' FOSSCOMM position as they see it
and share with the list.

That can be the basis for evolving the position that they can represent
FOSSCOMM on the apex committee.

In addition there was another specific proposal that we should seek the 
membership of FOSSCOMM in the Apex Committee itself.
