wow, can't believe this thread is still running on this subject line.

back to my original intent: i think it's entirely fair (and often
*necessary*) to establish concrete systems to regulate the use of shared
resources.  and of course those most familiar with the whys and
wherefores of these resources should get special consideration for their
intimate knowledge of the challenges to hand.

that said, if the holders of the reins have already decided how to
proceed, they should go on and proceed.  if they want the input of the
affected community, it's dishonest to dismiss that input.

we're debating how to use the available metrics to tune the management
of [community].  there is an outstanding and unanswered concern with the
accuracy of those metrics.  it seems to me that folks will not be happy
with the proposal until that concern is resolved.  so can anyone either
 (concretely) answer that concern or (concretely) propose better metrics?


p.s: i'm participating in the hopes of facilitating actual consensus on
this.  if that's not welcome, let me know and i'll sod off.
