The proposal by Andrew Savory was
and a thread followed from it. I asked for some clarifications
and was mostly happy with Andrew's proposal and Ramanan's
extensions. Unfortunately, the "unprofessional" crowd made some
FUD and the one person with root on the server was against having
"too many" open lists, so most of Andrew's idea got lost.

Andrew Savory now lectures on how and why the Apache community
works and education-commercial collaboration. Why aren't we
following his advice on this yet?

(Committee being slow/unwilling to make structure decisions
was mentioned as a problem even then...)

That reasoning has even less support now than it was in 2003.
For a while, this list's charter has called that on-topic:

| About Fsfe-uk
| The general discussion list for UK people interested in Free
| Software, the Association For Free Software (AFFS), the FSF
| Europe and related UK activities.  It is a companion to the
| general address@hidden list.
| Please feel free to use this list for announcements, questions
| and discussion topics, but please try to keep it positive
| and polite.

Please create affs-announce and affs-members like we should
have done two years ago.
