Can we delay this until after OSCon?  I would like to work on M4 100%  
this week and then relax at OSCon next week.  If this is really  
important, I guess we can work on it now, but I get the feeling the  
community wants M4 asap :)

In the mean time I think it would be helpful if you could point the  
community at the guidelines used by the different projects at the  
ASF.  I think a bit of background reading over the next two weeks  
will make this discussion move much easier.  I also request that  
until we discuss and vote on the guidelines we remove them from our  
website;  I don't want to create any confusion.

BTW, I definitely think this is useful for the project, and I am not  
attempting to kill this idea.  I just want everyone to have the  
bandwidth to participate.
