I agree on taking this to the council, when the time is right.

IMHO once the new board is able to decide on handing things to the SPI
and/or doing it in house. The next thing is likely to turn to the

After all that's the mission of the board right. To help, oversee, and
provide for the project in non-technical ways :)
