*Siiiiiiiiiiigh*, this is a decision that has project-wide implications
by setting the project's direction, and even if the consititution grants
the tech-ctte this power it's precisely here where a GR would be the most
fair option, because lots of people might need to end up having to do or
stop doing work due to this. Also even if a majority of the project would
disagree with any such decision, subsequently overruling the tech-ctte by
way of a GR requires more than a simple majority. You know, GRs do not
eat babies or something.
If I had wanted to be told top-down, by a small committee how to spend
my *volunteer* time in a project I'd have joined a corporate-backed one
Very much not amused…
I'm happy to sponsor a GR to decide this, though.
