I'm not assuming they don't know. I'm not assuming either way, that's
why I'm asking. The point I'm trying to make, which you seem to be
completely oblivious to, is that this is *not* a "most trivial
matter". It is a very serious matter which needs to be given the
appropriate consideration. If the people involved have already given
it that consideration, then great, if not, then hopefully I've saved
them the trouble doing it wrong could cause. If you consider people
discussing how to make the foundation work well "tiresome", I suggest
you unsubscribe from this list.
