HI Roman,

I am one of the mentors for MetaModel podling.
The initial discussion about bylaws come from me since I had some bad
experience with some projects so I brought up the topic.
But per recommendations by other mentors in the podling we decided to
put off the bylaws effort for now.

But you are right, at this point the discussion is too early and we
are now trying to get back to focus on delivering a release.

Thanks for the report =)

- Henry
