Going back to the original subject: given that we seem to have consensus
on the protocol branding, I think the next step is for me to write up a
formal proposal that the Board can approve (I don't think it needs to be
a JEP). Given that a new Board (and Council) will be seated on September
20, we could wait until then, or just get this approved and move on with
our lives. Then we need to have a "quiet period" for the JEPs (probably
~2 weeks) while we make all the relevant changes.

Oh, and keep those Board and Council position papers coming:


Would "job descriptions" help?
