Hi Michael,

       Ho hum; I'm personally averse to widespread small changes - they tend
not to get the level of review that is required, and we were IMHO very
badly burned by the level of un-reviewed change before the bylaws were
frozen; that then required extensive expenditure of time (that is still
ongoing) to get them into better shape.

       Personally, I'd like to see all such changes posted here for some
sanity checking first along with some justification. We have code review
during code freezes, even more so legalese review.

I recall that "people" were requested to read the bylaws properly
before voting on the original draft... :-P

I would only make strictly *spelling and grammatical* corrections,
nothing more. Do I have an OK for that?

Hi :)
I think it is a good idea to do a spelling and grammar check although i suspect 
that Florian has probably already flagged up the only 4 issues.  It would be 
good for a native En-Us speaker to double-check jic.  Given that registration 
will be done in Germany it is more important to get the German translation 
reasonably perfect rather than the En-Us version.  

Alfresco seem to be a great place for storing documents in a way that allows 
people to reviews and create a "working notes file"  so that when a particular 
document/rule/guideline/policy is scheduled for review the changes could be 
discussed and possibly added (if agreed).  

Regards from
Tom :)
