Again, you're right that you initiated the conversation, but this was my 

I don't know if this helps at all, but I'll assume that you understand
what I'm getting at. I'll bet Maemodom would appreciate you outlining
some sort of loose work structure and sending it to the community List.
If you do, though, be prepared for argument, but also be prepared to
either ignore or challenge what people say... I, as part of the Council,
trust you to make these decisions, so (at least) I will back you up.
Hopefully, the rest of 'em will to. If there are larger issues that
arise, we can always have an impromtu IRC meeting to sort things out.

That being said (and private conversations out in the public), I hope 
this remains public.

Paraphrasing from another email to Jeremiah: No one trying to garner 
lordship over anyone. There is just confusion as to how the Council is 
supposed to work -- with good right.
