That's not true. The way the proposal is currently worded it could be
implemented by Manu on his own without any need for consensus (other
than some individual being willing to package the donate
program). Pointing out that the package would be even more useful if a
standard for the DONATION file were to be publicized via freedesktop.org
isn't at all the same as telling Manu to "go to another list".
