9 Er, I don't think it's a bad idea. Heck, I suggested it several years
10 back. What I do think is that there are several less than ideal aspects
11 of the way it's proposed that could easily be fixed by someone spending
12 a few hours going through the GLEP process. These aren't difficult
13 changes, but they will substantially improve the end result.
15 And no, the GLEP process isn't broken. Well thought out proposals can
16 be approved very quickly, and the GLEP process helps iron out any
17 problems in the proposals.
