Sure, but the success of the Wiki attests that people want instant 
gratification when writing stuff, and you and I, and a few others know 
that the current publication system, using CVS, doesn't provide this.

I'm not saying we shouldn't use Forrest, I just hope that we don't kill 
honest good initiatives just because of infrastructural concerns. This 
infrastructural political correctness meme tires me at great length.

I think PMC oversight as a concept is close to everybody's heart, but I 
don't understand why it is now being used as an argument pro or contra 
some technical solution. I'm all +1 for rules, but they must make sense 
and not be used as some political weapon.
