Right, but at least I won't "fully flesh out" all five of them (not counting variants), if it's clear that four of these five are for the dustbin. Refining each of them to the level that's appropriate for a GLEP or for inclusion in PMS means quite some work. I'd rather see the vote at the next meeting as a recommendation that such or such proposal should be worked out in detail. Meaning one of the proposals if there's a clear majority, or maybe two if the decision is split. The council would need to vote on it again for its final acceptance.

We should of course assume that council members will be prepared and consider it before the meeting. ;-) Certainly it wouldn't be very efficient use of the time if all details of the different proposals would have to be explained during the meeting. Ulrich
