Think I was born yesterday?  ;-)

Note the timestamp (yes, I could easily forge that, but I didn't).  I 
didn't mention it because where the cvs messages go is still under 
discussion, and didn't want to mention that I set it up the way I (and 
perhaps apparently you?) think it ought to be done. ;-)

Sometimes the best way to focus discussion is to take concrete action. 
I was merely cueing off of (1) Ken's note that the only obstacles that 
remained were technical todos, (2) the tapestry proposal itself, and (3) 
the string of +1 votes that came in yesterday, in particular the one 
Sander Striker - his vote was clearly not an automatic +1, but an 
indication that that his concerns either have been, or are well on their 
way towards being, addressed.

Anyway, it took only a few minutes to set up what I did.  I can all be 
wiped out in seconds.
