It actually would be a big jump start. i put a fair amount of time/$ in with my lawyer to create an initial set of bylaws to were tailored to evolt.org(irc voting, pgp voting, etc), and for the last 9 months, they've sat around collecting dust(for which i also share part of the blame). so i hope you understand how it would make me feel when only after I leave are you prepared to finally work on the documents i put the time/$ into. if anyone thinks thats unreasonable, please let me know.
