How could we complain ? The decision process inside the Nomcom is so
secretive that the visibility of the community either on the process or
the criteria being used is inexistent. There is no possibility to
appeal, challenge the choices or vote on the slate of candidates. This
is a major issue that should be addressed by the Nomcom review. I think
complaints will surface.

Certainly, we need a more transparent, less challengeable, process than
the Nomcom.
