Some of us won't discuss anything else until we get our way. Let's lighten up a bit and return to the issues with more open minds, looking for solutions. > I think access needs to be more widely distributed and a better crew > established. I don't think access should be more widely distributed. I think we should focus on getting useful processes figured out and defined. That will allow for a better crew to be established and then distribute access where needed to support evolt.org. Things get handled well enough as they are, we need to do other things with our time. > The leadership needs to change. You know, you may be right. Several of the people we chose to lead evolt.org have been very dissenting and bitter for a while now. I wish this were not the case and that we could heal the wounds. As rudy said, both sides must have a desire to fix it. Ron D.
