To be precise, it's taken us 248 messages.  (466 was the number of emails sent
to general@incubator in November.)

For a better perspective, here are tallies combining November and December
(through today):

*   768 emails sent to general@incubator
*   248 emails in threads related to Incubator process reform

Compare those numbers against January/February 2012, the last time the
Incubator tried to tackle process reform issues in earnest:

*   1652 emails sent to general@incubator
*   ~700 emails in threads related to Incubator process reform

Note that those tallies don't include traffic to private@incubator.  If we
added in the private@incubator stats the contrast would be even more dramatic,
because this time we were *much* better about keeping discussions on the
public lists.

And thank you, Bertrand -- for your creative, adaptive suggestions, and for
being so easy to work with as always!
