sorry, I think that it is imperative that the Business Manager take full responsibility for the selection of the "incubatees". This should include defining the Terms of Reference, advertising, assessing applications, interviewing and selection. The final candidates can then be passed to the BoT for approval (as indicated in the Afrinic policy documents).

Please also do us all a favour and define who "we" is in this context? Who are the "can't-wait-anymore grassroot operators"? 

Despite our urgency and good intentions we must make sure that we handle Afrinic with care. Rushing into things headlong may not necessarily be the best thing at this time.
