to be clear, I have absolutely no problem at all with your -1 vote, I
think it's great to have discussion and absolutely appropriate to vote
-1 if you think something should be changed. At the same time, I think
we also both agree it's important to make progress and so as you said,
if it doesn't pass, we still have the opportunity to adjust it and
propose it again, and if it does pass there's also still the
opportunity to propose an additional new change as you suggested.

The most important thing I think is we stay engaged, at least enough
to "keep the ship afloat", and I think we're all working towards that
