Richard, the format of the official documents is something best left for the GDP to discuss.

With time, that position might change, but in any case that's a discussion that should be held within the GDP project. - -- Regards, Jorge Vicetto (jmbsvicetto) - jmbsvicetto at gentoo dot org Gentoo- forums / Userrel / Devrel / KDE / Elections / RelEng -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.18 (GNU/Linux) Comment: Using GnuPG with Mozilla - iQIcBAEBAgAGBQJO245iAAoJEC8ZTXQF1qEP2TsP/3+T8CD9L54bWN4U1GYjNXc6 3D7xRvWHin+y1ZCPSZA7x6FvOZfiUO/w+QhClKTlvg6Gth3faAqLsssNAbmLOz7O uM7QbIfJtybtZVOVw6RhlO+FDdyPx1OWsYjjtbq9Sp3FNxoSQm0y26XlAP1UfMTK gDvKxa/Je2dAKERrMWYqM0PzpXXvPvw6k9Q8ZMcT/Zxv+hC8GgdiRjPVsehHC0yw UKvd+3TqDkp6655qwGSXngR3acVbMOHH0OAS6wyPlrtv0nDMUlABVEUmQXOFiJjD Cnb2//FZ76hwLtSbezq03EBO3MMF+FvyzFT0CDIl4K5U0NAuokeDL5BUAFNDjRPL jO5ESqbHy0lgLg/ZaVsREqYXnMNMG5B9jM39eb2KJG6LAs0hIUBmovO4CuC4Cmdu HlwiYr7q2jsTBIY22BcDoLB1BWP039fV5N4UdtTa0Q4eh+0YzlTj20HXlEV9ffNw tchUigN42Tg+T2fDgMzJz+XN1AwzXtFLamYw72UScBnuOe3ap0vvxWn3sq0Wgh5m uDh/hx0zYfLGhStxMW53hLElalZxMCjcjRcoVKELcfXRdDN7Z9r7C3Z+M3jNKAyn 7hVOKsXpFa7X9d+Mx4ttvLtmDYZqOvLmqWzWWVJRgDS1y1Q/SRm10SmFHhTv55yC 7oxCP4mReu8aHMh0l4pd =RWNw -----END PGP SIGNATURE-----
