Hi All,

I've been following this discussion with interest but not felt strongly 
on any thing raised up until the "tooling" discussion began - do we use 
Git or GoogleDocs.

I am an infrequent git user myself - I can use it and the relevant 
review tools but am far from fluent.  This is also, I suspect, true of 
many of our fellow LA members - they are not fluent git users.

It seems to me then that in the spirit of wishing to invite the widest 
possible range of input and participation from those interested in the 
core discussion (LA's future) we should keep the barrier of entry as low 
as possible.

There will be many in our fold that have excellent contributions to make 
and feel comfortable in a mailing list discussion, or adding a comment 
to a google doc.

But for these same people working out the process to contribute via a 
git repository, when coupled with the inevitable pressures of day to day 
life, will quickly see their desire to be involved fall into the too 
hard basket.

We are, to a person, an excellent community, but not always deeply 
conversant in the tools - let us continue the discussion in it's current 
"easy to use" form and move to the worthy, but more exotic methods in 
due course.

Kind Regards,
