No objection, but it may be useful to link to that page as well.

I'm not sure if aph is managing this at all, so it may be useful to
skip him and just request to mail -doc. I also don't think that a
cc of the full thread to -admin is of any use. It's better to contact
-admin with the outcome of the discussion. When we get flooded by
mails we can't handle it's a good chance to kill the entire thread
and hence miss the outcome.
There are lies, statistics and benchmarks.
