Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Jokes aside, the mechanism is as follows:
The Members of the Commission shall be chosen according to a rotation system based on the principle of equality, the implementing arrangements for which shall be adopted by the Council, acting unanimously.

A system has already be agreed upon, in the Lisbon Treaty. But the issue of loosing a Commissioner was important in the campaign, so Ireland's Prime Minister might be in a difficult situation here.
