Um, huh? I'm at a loss for words on this.

This is exactly the problem I've been trying to overcome for so long.
It's not up to the "blessed" people on the Committee (now called the
Council, to emphasize that it's an oversight body and not a project
team) to personally undertake every little task that every LA member can
think of.

There is no proposal. It was an idea floated by AJ, but it hasn't gone
further than that. Nobody has a specific plan that they're keeping
secret from the LUGs until after the PLUG AGM. There is no conspiracy.

If you (or anyone else from PLUG, or anywhere else) think AJ's idea has
merit, please *create* a proposal! Don't just say "wouldn't it be nice
if those lazy LA Council bods got off their butts and implemented my
$RANDOM_IDEA in all their spare time".

If you want it done, do it.
Cheers    :-)
