So what's an appropriate place to discuss the changes that we would like,
*together*, to make to the current document and propose upstream ? As stated
in another e-mail in a similar thread, I believe we need to come together and
decide on what we want to do. We still have no official forum to do so, and
repeatedly telling people that ksummit-discuss and LKML are not the right
place won't make the concerns go away. Only by discussing problems will we
come to solutions.
