Case A:
They will only discuss what is needed for the elections. Unless we 
intend to use [[security by obscurity]], specially because we want to 
avoid last time problems, it should (must) be completely public.
I'd propose a meta: page to brainstorm, or maybe a thread on the list.
No need to put restrictions (real names, can't vote...) as it's widely 

Case B:
They are those who will verify the elections are "clean". The 
requirements (real name, +18... ) are appropiate.

Case C:
These election committee will be the chief of the Election Officials and 
set their rules.
At least on the beginning discussion should be public.
I don't know if there will be on during the elections some case nobody 
else can know. Public discussion is ok for most of cases, even if they 
have the last word. Doesn't seem so important being +18 or not voting.
