Okay, thanks for the information. > I thought I point that out since that's your rights as members of the > foundation. That said, I agree with Dave. I'll support whoever proposes this as a vote. Being a member I'd like to propose this vote (but apparently I need '5% - 1 person' of the other members, I don't know how they can officially support the proposal). As a reply to the legitimate concerns you and Dave have: o. I don't think being afraid of that is sufficient reason to sidestep the issue. We're an intelligent group of people.
