Right, after all, the Board may well decide that PVC is not needed and
vote the resolution down. Since the resolution is actually submitted, I
would postpone all discussion (perhaps with the exception of the
personalia which can still be easily incorporated in the list by the
board) until the resolution is actually voted.
