Can we setup a call next week with the counsel for the major contributors?
If it's 7-9 companies this shouldn't be difficult to resolve. I hate to be
difficult but this topic will not be resolved on a public mailing list
unless everyone is willing to punt on the issue until there is a governing
board to make the decision.

I am willing to schedule and host the call. I just need the names and
emails of your counsel. Please email me directly and not on the list.

Thanks,

Mike
