        I am afraid I do not see how participating in the discussion
 will fuel the paranoia of folks that "everything's always decided
 behind closed doors!" part.  They can always point out how any of the
 proposals being bruited will impact actual releases, or help iron out
 impracticalities in suggestions (not every thing need be shot down out
 of hand [yes, yes, I know, that's what I often do])

When all else fails, read the instructions.
