So, are you saying that you don't want to meet?

"(except for two latest proposals)"

Are you just ignoring those then?

I think it is very clear what I intend to start to come to a consensus
about. I want to see a well defined Functional Specification that a group of
people can agree to work towards. Nothing more. Nothing less.

At this point, with the hundred page emails of everyone saying 50 different
things, I'm not sure how that is clear to anyone.

Ok, where is a single clear well defined functional specification for Ant
2.0 that everyone agrees on? Sorry, I missed it.

p.s. I removed Brian from the CC because he doesn't need the extra email
discussion I'm sure.
