Hi All,

Following on the recent [discussion][1] about BIP process friction, and 
admissions from Luke that he has not had the time to actively work on 
the BIPs repo ([2], [3]), I think it is prudent for us to look at adding 
more BIPs editors. These people would have the same permissions and 
responsibilities that Luke has, i.e. can assign BIP numbers, merge PRs 
adding new BIPs, merge PRs to fix existing BIPs,and all other 
responsibilities as described in [BIP 2][4]. I think this would 
significantly help get through the backlog of BIPs PRs, and responding 
to them in a timely manner to significantly reduce the friction of 
getting BIPs changes merged. Of course, this would require that all BIP 
editors agree on the numbering scheme so that BIPs continue to be 
numbered consistently.

Considering the responsibilities of these tasks, I think any new BIP 
editors should be people who have a history of following and being 
involved in Bitcoin development, as well as being known to evaluate 
proposals objectively, and of course, are willing to do the job. With 
that in mind, I think both Kanzure and RubenSomsen are very good 
candidates to be BIP editors, and having both of them working on the 
BIPs repo would greatly benefit all of us.

Thanks,
Ava
