Not sure I grok what you want to specify here? That we communicate w/ the author
via email, and via the council mailing list?

+1 on one week.. Seems like if something gives someone a particularly nasty
reaction, 7 days is good enough to at least acknowlegde that we have issues.

+1 on that URL.

Do JEP authors have enough contact w/ the council?? Are they comfortable using
the council list to get feedback?
