Policy and Procedure has adopted a rudimentary set of policies and procedures. This adoption is a step in the right direction to get the early momentum of the community moving again. Included is a “silence is acceptance” policy and a 72-hour rule for decisions. In addition, those proposing actions must be ready and willing to carry out the tasks of fulfilling the proposal.

It is now a year since the project was officially announced, and I’m happy to see the flame rekindled, so to speak. I think that the implementation of these policies, along with a sense of renewed fervor for the project, will help to push the community forward to start producing a Web site that provides world-class resources. It’s only a matter of time now before the site goes live. Here’s to hoping that that time is short and this recent drive for activity doesn’t die out.
