I'm very uneasy about adding specific text to foundation documents. Is
your proposal meant as an addition to the GRs that want to exempt Sarge
from the change to the SC?
I really like your proposal in general but I believe it should be voted
on *after* we exempted Sarge from the current SC, and be independant of
it. Also, it should be stripped of all personal and only presently
applicable texts, like the references to Raul, Joey and Sarge.
