Uh, no; but it should only need to be updated to match the subsequent 
comments and clarifications. Unless there's already been an updated 
proposal since then that I've overlooked?

At a minimum, it needs a clear and concise description of what Community 
Code's about, and it needs to avoid the "LA may choose to do this, or it 
may choose to do that" alternatives -- see the followup mails from Pia, 
Andrew and myself for which ones.

At least initially, that should be the sub-ctte chair, which is to say 
whoever's the driving force behind the project. That seems like you or 
Mary, or perhaps the both of you as co-chairs -- at least that's what 
I'm guessing from participation in this thread and the wiki's 
RecentChanges. At any rate, it's the sub-ctte chair that we need to 
know; if sitting in on each others' meetings ends up being a regular 
thing or a burden that needs delegation to a "liason officer" of some 
sort, that can be fixed up any time.

That's fine, and there's no problem if that changes as things go, it'd 
just be good to have actual names of people who're committed to this and 
working on it up front.

Just what you're doing / trying to do. It's pretty interesting, and 
probably a meme worth spreading to other places.
