I'll take 2 examples : ldp-submit and moving from ldp-l to ldp-discuss.

- ldp-submit was decided after a very short consultation, and was
immediately ready.

- moving from ldp-l to ldp-discuss took month and caused major problems.

When we had no response from metalab, deciding to move to another site
caused many problems, but 2 days later everything was available on

I'm not saying we must always act without consultation, but sometimes
you need that, or the problem will never end.

Will watch this one carefully since now everything is processed in less
than 7 days. But it stills needs improvements.

Cooler. Documentation should be attractive to beginners.

Please develop this.
Evil, nasty, greedy, uncooperative, egoist?

Improving. Was worst this summer with slashdot articles.

By far better than old private one.

Improving. ftp will complete ldp-submit soon.

Should be more formal.

Just tell us if you want the LDP to blow up.

If you can help us finding prizes for contests, and money for expos,
please help us.
