That was my original thinking.

1. Start discussing development of Heraldry on the public mailing  
lists.  That means discussions BEFORE checkins. That means  
participation from more than just David Recordon and Kevin Turner.   
Look at this list of committers for Heraldry: <http://>.  Now look at the  
mailing list archives and see who has posted in 2007 (to keep it  
simple).   We need to see some signs of life from those folks.  Along  
with discussing, start voting on code related decisions.

2. Address the LGPL header issue that has been open since October.    
Name a deadline (not longer than a week) and get it done.

In other words, the same two things that the mentors have been asking  
for since October.
