Just to clarify, as one off-list discussion raised concerns about
pressuring folk to share more than might feel comfortable: I do, of
course, intend no more than that we invite the newly-chosen to say as
much about themselves as they feel comfortable saying.  If they wish to
keep their public exposure to what's visible already on gerrit, they are
of course free to do so.

We've heard one +1 and no other public response.
