5 Let's allow feedback to collect for a day or even two more, and then we
6 should have an idea on what's left to do before implementing this plan.
8 Then we will set an implementation schedule, with a deadline that we all
9 work towards. The only thing I want to see is that we complete this as soon
10 as possible while at the same time ensuring that we do it "right".

18 I'm actually thinking of a different purpose for the ~x86 team. They can
19 focus on monitoring for new versions of sources, and informing the
20 appropriate herds of new sources so that we keep up-to-date. Second, they
21 can stay in touch with people actually running the ~x86 tree on their
22 systems and be responsible for tracking/keeping apprised of inter-herd
23 issues and informing the appropriate herd(s). Quite a few people run ~x86
24 all the time, and we should try to be as responsive as possible to these
25 people since they are helping us test stuff.
27 Then we have a team we can turn to to get a status update on the current
28 state of ~x86 -- what problems people are having, where we are not quite
29 up-to-date, what inter-herd conflicts exist, etc. So it will be more of a
30 supportive role for our herd structure.
32 Comments/suggestions are welcome.
