Thanks.  You're right; I'd missed that.

Perhaps we should ask for volunteers to serve on the Decision Panel
now, and then vote on Friday both on whether it should be formed, and
who should take positions on it?  (I can't think of a way to decide
who should be on the panel that doesn't involve SLOBs voting on them,
unless we just let anyone who wants to be on it join.)

Okay.  I'll be at the Linux Plumbers Conference, but I think I can
make the meeting anyway.
