I am not suggesting we coordinate on a peer to peer basis.  I said,
very plainly, to contact me if you are interested.  There is of course
a mailing list, but I have absolutely no interest in simply moving
this thread to the new mailing list.

The project will be open source, it will exist on github.  But we are
in the planning stages, and this is how things are going to be run at
this point.  Too many cooks in the kitchen will be a death sentence
for the project, and I'm not willing to let that happen.

I understand your concerns, and I don't think anyone here is asking
for something unreasonable.  But I'm also very aware that this is not
the first time these concerns have been raised, and these types of
discussions have happened in the past.

What didn't happen in the past was any action.  That's something (at
least with luaforge/snippets) I'm hoping to change.
