My feeling was that majority of people said poaching (in a very positive sense) is the way
OSS works.
Why can't we start with poaching/refactoring and then, in N months, evaluate both the outcome
and the process and see if things can work that way in the future[*] or something more drastic
should be done?

Additionally, if I understand things correctly, poaching is only needed when the code is not
committed in the "right" project/location to begin with.
