First of all I just want to say a big Thank you to Kathy Lussier for
writing such a great analysis of this issue. I think she did an
excellent job of articulating the basic arguments for both sides.
I agree that we need some kind of process for requesting new lists or
guidelines about when a new list is warranted. I would be happy to help
come up with some guidelines after the Sitka upgrade to 2.12 is complete
(end of May).
I think that the debian requirements are a great place to start.
Currently the vote is 5/3 in favour of a new list. I am happy to wait
until May 5th to see if there is any further discussion on this topic.
Since this is the third time over the years that an Acquisitions
specific list has been requested I strongly feel that we should go ahead
and create the new list.
