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/rock stable/rock-stable/
  s/working at/working in/
  s/case-by-case-decisions/case-by-case decisions/
  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.
