Leaders, leaders, leaders.  What do we need them for?  I don't like
your idea.

I think we had a few new developers who fell into making imperative
statements rather than developing technical criteria (something most of
us are guilty of from time-to-time).  I think things are progressing
just fine.  The only thing we need is to notice when a discussion is
going awry and have someone make some helpful suggestions in private or
public to help set things right again.  I am sorry that I got behind on
things and couldn't help in this respect sooner.
