Re: Board Chair Term
- You got my vote!
I think in the next year we have to focus on the profile in order to
get it done without another year of delays. I think everybody would
like to see this and it could easily pass.
On the other hand, I think the draft spec is trouble and should be put
on hold until we have more community support.
