As one of the primary contributers to the copyright proposal I would obviously
like to be involved in its ratification. I am guessing some of the other main

To get this started we need a mailing list and a repository, then we can place a
notice on the wiki directing people to the mailing list and make the wiki page
immutable so that there is no confusion.
