Subject A possibly gratuitous meta- thread on the open office discussion
Date Fri, 03 Jun 2011 20:18:51 GMT
We now have several running threads. They overlap in content, and
their subjects are, in some cases, rather uninformative.

I want to suggest some options to improve this situation to make it
easier for ipmc members (and others) to follow the discussion and
register their points of view.

Option 1: a champion of the proposal takes inventory and starts a
number of meaningfully-labeled threads for the subjects of ongoing
discussion, and we all try to resist the urge to respond further in
the original set. For those existing threads that have a coherent
subject line and content, they could just be endorsed.

Option 2: we use the wiki to stack up comments and concerns about the
proposal. That does make it easier for anyone to show up and survey
the territory.

Option 3: you all ignore me, as is your privilege.

If this were an in-person meeting, and I were the moderator (and pigs
had wings ...) I'd be trying to sort out the areas of material
disagreement and concern and focus attention onto them and away from
everything else.
