Drew Devault also volunteered on IRC, but think we need at least one with
long history and/or trust. Kevin definitively has high level of trust,
so I think he is a good candidate. (he has access to build servers and
signing keys)

So we have Chloe, Richard and Kevin. I have also asked if Allison
Randal want be part of this work group as a neutral "external"
specialist. Allison has been developer and member of various other
distros like Debian, Ubuntu and SUSE and has some experience with open
source governance. She has already given me some good advice and ideas
regarding Alpine Linux re-org and said she can help us with this.

I suggest that Kevin do the coordination.

Thanks you all!
