Some thoughts from this end:

I also have the feeling that the proposal could benefit from some more
"meat". The timing around Christmas indeed was not very helpful
either. But what really concerns me a bit is the question whether
people really want to/can work together. It seems like the fork /
non-fork debate already left some scars and I am not eager to invest
time when people can't get along even to begin with. Maybe my "Avalon"
alarm is set a little too sensitive but for now I only vote +0.
