(1) Does your proposal require a certain number? Yes or No.

(I am hoping the answer is no.)

(2) In the proposal is explicit agreement required to keep karma? Yes or No.

(I am hoping no and any problems with actual interference should be dealt with calmly and
directly with the PMC in private.)

IMO - Our default policy should be to work together and we all agree we need as many as sysadmins
on the team as possible.
