One person wrote they'd do it if no-one else did, and one person wrote
they'd do it if no-one objected. No-one sent me a decision or details.

What part of "Please tell me where I should send them to" requires
someone to fix his car?

There are 5 elected members left. The committee is less than
half-full and there is no "serving" constraint in "half of
the membership shall retire", so I was conservative and didn't
count on any of the current elected members retiring. Co-opted
and appointed members must retire anyway.

That proposal failed to achieve the required majority before my
resignation, but you can rewrite the rules now if you want.
