Yes, I see that. As am I.

See my previous email - yes, the list on the wiki is a subset because
it arose from the questions of that group of people. Please do not
misinterpret the list as suggesting that that group of people were
the only ones capable and willing to take them on.

It doesn't need to remain a subset. It's a starting point. Build on
it and move on.

Why prevent people from adding themselves to a page where we can all
see it and collaboratively build it together? Everyone here has
rights to amend that page - go crazy folks, act on your own behalf
and add yourselves. Add roles too - look at the current list and see
what's missing.

Let's use the *whole* intelligence of this group of people.

Having the additional step of collation is unnecessary. The
initiative doesn't need organising at this point - it *will* however
need organising to ensure that is actioned. That's the point of
failure here.
