To be honest, this doesn't even need a GLEP so much as a website or 
something.  If somebody consolidated all this stuff into a reasonable 
format, I bet that half the devs would pitch in and make their 
contributions.  The only thing that might warrant a GLEP is a policy 
decision that all development policies must be documented or linked from 
that site to be binding, or something like that.

I don't think that for the council to make a policy decision that there 
needs to be a GLEP.  Sure, it is the best way to make big changes, or 
changes that require some level of formality.  However, the council can 
still show leadership in affirming their agreement on issues even if it 
isn't a formal affair.  I'm sure every other town government in the 
Western World has taken a vote in support of their troops or something 
like that without going through the official lawmaking process and all 
that - it is just a gesture.

I don't have the time to create such a website although I would agree 
that it is sorely needed.  Hence, I will try to be careful in throwing 
around criticism - it is much easier to bring problems to the table than 
solutions...
