17 The metastructure document (which we voted in as our governing
18 document last year) uses the term 'project' instead of team, and makes
19 no mention of herds at all.
21 I think the way forward would be to have this clarification (of herds
22 vs teams) added to the metastructure document, and then for us to sort
23 out the metadata.xml files on the back of that.
25 I guess any change to that document should be subject to a vote.
27 Best regards,
