Re: [ga] Thank you.
Thank you for a somewhat clear message.
I have some "thoughts" about this however, please find them between the lines.

ont a good idea, one person is unable to do this task and do it objective as

I suggest you get some help on this momentous task, since it is easy to
oversee what is and what is not important, one person doing this leads, no
matter how good the intentions are, to a subjective representation of the
content of the GA's discussion, something we should (IMO) try to prevent.

Of course we can start the discussions ourselves to ?

Though i can see the persuasion reasons it is also my opinion that once a
representative is voted into position he/she has a task to inform the GA
regularly (weekly at least) of progress or lack thereof in said TF.
If such were not a prerequisite then why even bother to call them
representative, one would assume they would draw heavily on feedback from the
GA in order to represent the GA.

Well considering the above it seems some discussion shall follow, but I
assume this was expected.
