I agree with Roberto, and if Danny is not insisting on our resignation
(or even he still is;-)) , I support the establishment of good online
discourse. My only problem is how much time/energy I can devote
to some possible complicated debates, but that is an excuse,
and I am optimistic that many of our colleagues collectively can
produce a reasonable and valuable outcome.

I think that establishing mailing lists within ALAC, open to public contribution, is something that we have already discussed in the early days of ALAC, and the answer was that it was a good idea.

Isn't this what the ALAC forum is for? Personally, I see no problems in opening a specific topic on this subject.
