I join the chorus of people trying to stop this chorus before it gets
from 49 bottles of beer on the wall to 48.

There is a meta-question here: what are the criteria by which the IPMC
should evaluate a proposal?

1. "Are there enough people on the proposal to plausibly start out?"

I think everyone agrees on this as a legitimate criterion.

2. "Given the vast size of the codebase, is there any chance of
building a large enough group to maintain and enhance it."

I fear that this involves the application of a crystal ball, but
others may disagree.

3. "How many people are detectable on the two existing projects, as
this will teach us something about (2)"

No. It won't. Others on this thread of perfectly eloquently explained why.

So, please make some new threads with some new subjects if you want to
argue my view here or any of the substantive questions.
