        Still seems to be in discussion period (should be set to

        I have done this, but have not closed the bug, since it was
 again, i did not notice it.

        I am under rather severe time pressure at the moment. I am
 afraid I do not have time to track the status of the proposals on
 policy -- I am depending on the principals to change the status of
 the reports as suggested in the guidelines. 

The stages in a proposals life

 a) Pre discussion period, an idea is
    floated, and kicked around and      wishlist bug, titled [PROPOSAL]
    polished for a bit. No preset
    time limit, but at some point, 
    if it is stalled, the bug should
    be closed.
 b) Formally seconded, and a time
    table set for discussion (normally  normal bug, titled [AMENDMENT yy/mm/dd]
    10 days to a month)
 c) End of discussion period.
   i) Consensus:                        forwarded, titled [ACCEPTED yy/mm/dd]
  ii) Stalled                           closed,    titled [REJECTED]
 d) edited into the policy doc          closed

 Hailing frequencies open, Captain.
