This (and the vote web page) is missing one of the spelling corrections from
<20081109151358.GM28730@mails.so.argh.org>: therefor -> therefore.
I would also suggest the following changes; Andi, I'd appreciate if you
would acknowledge these under A.1.6 of the SRP:
s/ during/, while/
s/an release/a release/
s/need to be done/need to be made about/
s/working at/working in/
s/authorize these decisions/we authorize these decisions/
None of these changes are intended to change the meaning of the resolution;
if I've misunderstood the intended meaning of the resolution, let me know
and I'll propose different wording to clarify those points.
