but i think it would be good for their responsibilities to be
communicated clearly with the rest of the project.

i think that branden does, as this is one of the main features of his
platform.

that is not so easy to get to. go to www.d.o; click on about; scroll
down to "Who are all you anyway?"; click on organized structure.

i enjoy reading the summaries that people send to d-d-a, but i would
enjoy more reading more summaries. it seems to me that branden would try
