If there is something discussed on the list and there is agreement/
consensus that it makes sense (by the people "behind" and "responsible"
for the proposal), then if they say "go ahead" then it's no problem:
the proposal is being adjusted in a way they approve of and are aware
of. My point was, as mentioned, just a procedural one: in general
modifications of ASF podling proposals are not open-ended nor changable
by just anyone.
