I don't have the faintest idea. I just thought we'd need a case study to
clarify our thoughts. Eventually the modified document should become
something like a charter for Monkey Speak.

Maybe you should add a paragraph on the status of the document and by whom
it should be created.

If you disagree with certain points, please rewrite the appropriate
paragraph(s) and put your version below mine.

You mean the 7 members max? I think many people will not like it, but I
think it's a good idea so I put it in. If you disagree, rewrite the
paragraph and put your version below mine.

We just should start somewhere.
