[Foundation-l] Closing projects policy now official

I also agree that a resolution is needed.  Two individuals don't speak for
the whole board and I'm not willing to take your word on it.  Up until now
the community has had the say over which projects were closed through the
proposals for closing projects and you throw out the statement that there's
a new "policy" that's "official" with nothing to back it up.  Further it's
supposedly the language committee which should have the say when most of the
proposals for closure are due to inactivity and have nothing to do with the
language itself.

I never saw any requests for comment from the community either before you
decided to pull the rug out from under us.  The situation is ridiculous.
