If you (or Neil) is interested in being more specific, feel free to use
the Policy team as an example of a team that could be doing better.  I
won't mind, and I'm pretty sure none of the other delegates will mind
either (apologies if that's not the case, but I think we're all aware that
we're not making particularly good progress through our backlog right
now).  Given that I'm feeling rather guilty about it, I'd welcome public
discussion of how we could do better, how to get to that point, and how
the DPL could help.
