You've decided to apply as policy a draft document which describes
itself as not reflecting policy.  Suggestion: remove the draft status,
approve the document, and remove section 2.11 (template text) to the
discussion page.

I've looked through the process.  It is discouraging and complex.  I
suggest that people other than activity developers be encouraged to run
through the process on behalf of discouraged or absent activity

It isn't clear to me how this process will increase or ensure stability
of the Sugar on a Stick releases.  Which particular meaning of stability
are you using; a lack of change, or a lack of reported defects?
