  Coming back to Alan's suggestion, I support the process by
which decisions are taken by public discussion as opposed
to private discussions. It might be a longer process, but at least
the members would feel that they are part of the process, though
the really useful inputs/suggestions might be coming only from
a few of them. This would simulate a voting democracy where
everybody has a voice, though the leaders make the decisions
for the followers.

Personally, I would be more interested in the programming questions,
though It would be worth it to follow the discussions on the bigger
picture also.
