I just noticed that I forgot to send a reply for TripleO.

I nominate myself.

Rather than wait for a certain number of people I think we'll move forward with who we've got by say July 2, 2020 and others can always join at a later date. This will help ensure that we keep things moving forward. Since membership isn't required having a cut off date for those interested makes sense. Thank you to those of you who have volunteered and looking forward to seeing more of you.
