11 Except the metastructure document actually has zero bearing in this,
12 since it wasn't a proposal of how to maintain packages. It was a
13 proposal on how we would try to organize ourselves. A herd plays no
14 part in this organization, which is why it wasn't mentioned then, and
15 shouldn't be mentioned now.

23 I sincerely hope that we do not change that document, which was quite
24 good at pertaining only to what was necessary, into trying to be some
25 form of document to pertain to everything.
