Hi, :-)

I took the liberty of adding an item to the agenda of the next SC
meeting on Thursday, Jan 13, for you to discuss and decide about the
future management of the website.

I have explained my ideas about the need for an editorial team, I am
not trying to push any personal agenda.

My only wish, after having pushed so hard to get it to its current
state of existence, is that it should be properly managed and
developed as a resource for the community. I trust in your
intelligence and discretion to achieve that. ;-)

I'm not really comfortable with this extraordinary powers over that
period and I would rather favour you driving a team (-an official team
that is-) . However, this is the Steering Discuss list, which means
that you have written an official and public request to the SC and we
are bound to discuss it at the next SC call, which we will do.

OK, thank you. if that will be OK with you guys, I'd like to take not
more than 60 seconds to present my thinking to you. If you decide to
take a vote on it, then I will happily accept whatever decision you
take. In any case, the most important thing would be to take *some*
kind of decision that ensures some form of proper future development
of the website.

Personally, I'm wondering if this is not going to end up as some kind
of committee of committees, with endless discussions, little
opportunity to take action, etc. Or should one give everyone
publishers rights and the first one to log in gets to deface the site
to his/her taste? ;-) Two ridiculous extremes, but they could easily
happen unless you do something to prevent it...

In any case, I have been feeling rather strongly for a few weeks that
some affirmative action is needed in community governance. IMHO, the
situation with the website is closely linked to an unsatisfactory
situation regarding governance. I will start another thread on this
subject.

I will be listening with interest to the next SC confcall. ;-)
