Re: [ba-unrev-talk] Whither ba-unrev?
Your previous comments on the subject and your present set of
recommendations look most sensible to me. In fact, we once made some
attempt along the first few of your suggestions, but I failed to do so
correctly. (Actually Kathryn Labarre and Chris Dent are working on
something near to this.) (01)
Next problem to resolve is finding a person or team to put your
suggestions into action. I know that Doug would just love to see talk
beginning to initiate a path to fruitful action. (02)
May I suggest again that persons willing to devote some of their energy
to help here to privately mail their intentions to Doug's administrative
assistant, Mary Coppernoll - firstname.lastname@example.org - perhaps this
time with a copy to John. (03)
