Re: [ga] CURRENT STATUS OF NOMINATION PROPOSALS (fwd)
I was doing the best I could in attempting to volunteer my time here to
the GA and my employer at the same time. Please forgive any oversight on
my part as last week was very hectic and hopefully you forwarded on your
proposal to the NC.
I did notice that there were one or two that I did not mention as they
were also cc'd to the NC and I since I didn't notice anyone attaching
their name to those other than the authors considered it a moot point to
include them in the list at the last minute.
I must say that many of the so-called proposals left much to be desired as
far as their explicitness, but it is so obvious that we do need some form
of centralization here in the form of order that will facilitate process.
I'm not convinced that this is what the NC has in mind for us.
