I'm inclined to agree that it should stay on theforum. There's also
the wiki approach, which seems so far to be a way to get ideas down
in a trackable manner. Putting time into the wiki is a good way to
allow people to participate with a reduced chance of discussion
"continuing forever." Still, I'll go with the flow, and it seems to
be moving in the direction of the charter working group.

>4) Group names discussion: I ignore it for the moment. Michele, who started

My mom and brother will be visiting next week (May 6-11), and I've
just got some freelance work I'm already deep into. I'll do what I
can (whatever that is).
