Well, I was kind of hoping that the BTS admins and the project leader
would agree that something like this was a good idea, think that my
draft was useful, suggest changes, and eventually we'd get to
something that we could all agree on one.
I was also hoping that people here on -project would have constructive
criticism (and explaining to me politely why they think the whole idea
is wrong, or why they don't like my draft at all, definitely
But, it's clear now that the BTS admins don't want to get involved -
officially at least - and the project leader isn't answering his
mail. That means that if it's going to have any kind of official
blessing it can only be that of the tech-ctte.
I did in fact send the first draft to the tech-ctte list; the
remaining discussion has been here, because it seemed to me like it
was something that more people should get involved in, or at least
So, in the absence of anything convincing me otherwise, after I think
everyone's had a say here, I'll go back to the tech ctte very shortly
and propose it as a resolution there - and obviously it'll have the
names of the DPL and BTS admins taken off it.
I'm not going to reply to the rest of your mail, because I think it'll
just generate heat and not light.
