I agree this needs to be resolved.   If we have even one person on the
PPMC with concerns about our current approach there is a reasonable
chance that there will be at least one person on the IPMC with similar
concerns.  It doesn't mean what we're doing is necessarily wrong.  It
just means that it is not sufficiently obvious that what we're doing
is right.

It is good to have someone neutral do this, so thanks.   I assume you
will take care to look at contributions as recorded in SVN commits,
but also forums, translations, Bugzilla, and other areas.
