Let's give everyone a break. DEP-5 has a long, complicated history, and
various people's feelings or egos have been bruised over time. It would
be good to avoid doing any more of that. The current hectic pace isn't
helping. So, in all seriousness, I propose:

* a 24-hour moratorium on posting about DEP-5 at all
* after that is over, not discussing every possible topic at once, just
a couple at a time

Now, I have no authority or power to enforce either of the above. And
that's not the point. This is an attempt to force people to do anything.
This is an appeal to sensible adults to take a step back, to take a deep
breath, and to calm down. I could do with some of that myself.
