Hey Chris,
In the past, someone would propose forming a committee, we'd talk  
through a basic understanding of what it will do, and then vote to  
create the committee.  Often the person proposing it would then become  
the chair.

I think we could evolve this process where someone creates a proposal  
on the wiki which can be sent to the board for review.  This would  
include information like the committee's name, goals, duration, and  
any potential members.  The board could then vote on the proposal in a  
more concrete fashion and we could keep better track of when  
committees can be retired.
