Hi Vicki

They are not proposals in the sense of things to be voted on.
Propositions might be a better word. Brainstorming yet another. Like
you say, there are many different ways a foundation or association
could be set up. Another issue to think about, is what would the
purpose of it be.

The wiki is designed for collborative editing, it is does so in a much
better way than IRC can. Once we have a lot of ideas and indeed a
summary, like you talk about, is exactly what we are aiming for. Then
we could have a much more productive meeting on IRC.
