Subject Re: guidance needed: looking into writing a proposal
Date Tue, 15 Apr 2008 14:27:32 GMT
The proposal guide is here:

One way to find a champion is to start writing your
proposal on the incubator wiki, and notifying this
list.  As people understand what it is you want to
do, they may step up to the task.  Starting the
proposal on the wiki is not the same as officially
submitting it.
