I'm not trying to push you off. Every single contribution is important.
And your contributions are particularly significant.

I'm just trying to move Gnash forward to a more "evolutionary stable"

I see no drama here
We just need a codified method of resolving conflicts.
One way is "last word to dictator" and another is "last resort is voting".
I'd prefer the latter.

I don't think any governance model will help in finding people willing
to work on this or that task. But might help choosing among proposals,
if they ever come up.
