Thanks for the draft! From a quick run-through of the patch (much
obliged for that, thanks), it seems pretty good.

The major differences to the original doc are:

1. Doing away with the Strategic/Operational lead split. We haven't
had two people doing those jobs in 5 years, anyway.

2. Translation project leads and "official" language status. Any
comments as to the changes here?

3. Join-up process. No formal "X number of contributions per period
Y." Works well enough for me, but then "how much does this potential
recruit actually do for us" becomes subjective hand-waving. We would
need a new metric to determine commitment over time. Ideas?

Anyway, if you can clarify your thinking on these 3 points, just so I
know where you're coming from, I'm fine with the proposed update.

How about the other GDP members -- any thoughts from the rest of you?
