Oh, I'm not complaining about the core group--6-7 people sounds about
perfect for this project. Much better than 1!

That's the openness that's drawn us over, which has been missing from
that other project. My only concern has been that the core team
practically equals the entire community--doesn't seem like very many

do what we can...
