er, what he said (damn, matt, you've become more eloquent lately)...

i'd like to add that i don't plan on killing threads that are
discussing evolt.org in general... now, if the majority here *want*
that, then it's a different story, but i firmly believe all
discussion is good discussion, even when it pisses some of us off...

we have pressing issues to address right now, and it's a good
opportunity to begin to hash out the long-term plans...

we can use this time to prototype our process, see what does and
doesn't work, and build into a long-term plan that will work...

we're better off moving forward from here...
