I have to agree with James Green-Armytage on this subject, and ask: who
you're addressing?  This mailing list is /not/ limited to public
proposals.  Below is a link to the charter:


This thread has kicked up some dust, and given some of the responses, it
seems that some people are confused about the scope and nature of this

about who gets to post on this mailing list please read the charter
