not everyone feels that confidence... i know i didn't until i saw the
list of people helping out, and then i lost confidence in a different

i think the problem is that too many people perceive a roadblock to
that happening... i myself have taken that approach on admin, tried
to help consolidate and move responsibilities *away* from admin on
 many occassions...  but when it comes time to grant access, or
provide information on who has it, it seems the information isn't as
forthcoming as some would like... again, few people outside of dan
knew who had access while he's away, a few of them didn't even
know they had access...

past experience is the buzzkill here...

you mean the list?  already started, might as well add to it now
while everyone likes the idea...

it seems to me that's what's going on, but you can't erase past
experience with a wave of the hand...

i've been absent from some pretty important stuff here, some of
directly related to my perceived duties with evolt...  and we've got
momentum... no reason for one person's absence to halt it, it never
has before...

we're not *doing* anything anyway, just talking this all through...
