Works great for me, James -- glad for the update, and I personally think
that at this point, almost any clear path forward is better than continuing
to wonder. I'm sure you'll do fine with picking a jury :)
Good luck getting through the RL work too!

well, who is "selecting" the jury?
So far as I know this is a community process, so everyone with a plan
could come up and take this into her / his hand.
I am hesitant because James Forrester already started to ask potential
jury members and engaged in setting up the process, so it looked like he
had the plan for 2013 at least and I don't want to mess with the work he
has already done.
So it would be good if he could give us a short update what he plans to
do or if someone else could / should take over.
Really sorry for the delay in this. A bunch of issues around this (and
IRL workload) have delayed me hugely; my apologies.
I propose to just charge ahead and announce a Jury in an hour's time
or so; I've tried my best to balance it (in the same way that we did
in previous years), which is not perfect - not by a long shot - but
(a) a Jury in place to make a decision in the next couple of months so
that 2013 bids can actually happen, and
(b) gives us a really good reason for this to be the last-ever Jury
created in this way, as I said on 30 December; I really don't want
this to be the process for 2014 (even if I dump this part on someone
I hope this meets with everyone's approval (OK, the majority's
acceptance - asking for mass approval is perhaps too much!).
