Posts from leader@d.o to -legal in February 2004 about "debian-legal review of licenses" suggested that "anyone can volunteer to summarize a particular discussion, post a summary to -legal to get the "ok" and then send it on" and that debian-legal should be "more proactive". It also seemed to be your idea that these summaries were mainly for forwarding upstream if requested, but I'm not sure that's been the main use of them so far.

Your messages suggested that you'd review "after a few months" mainly to see who is summarising, so now seems like a good opportunity. Do you have other comments about whether this turned out like you imagined?
