Arguably the ONLY thing the council does is interfere with individual
projects - that is its sole reason for existence. The DevRel project
already settles disputes, the PMS project already designs EAPIs, and
However, projects are self-governing and this creates the potential
issue of clashes with the needs of the distro as a whole, so we have a
Council as an appeal of last resort. A project's decision does not
necessarily speak for the whole distro - the Council does.
If the Council were to completely refrain from interfering with
projects, it could accomplish nothing.

This is of course the correct initial step. Work within the projects
until an issue actually arises. However, I could easily see the
Council getting involved here, as this would impact both the GLDP and
the Wiki projects.
That said, I think this is a good idea - why have our documentation
split in two?
