I'm glad to see that you are working this out.

Jorge, I think you can see that Cory is very results driven and prefers to
keep involvement at a minimum in order to maximum results.  I feel that it
is this "force of will" created Ubuntu Studio and afforded it the latitude
to grow as far as it has.

However, Cory, I would expect you to realize that Jorge doesn't offer much
"noise" and is a person that could greatly improve the work that we still
need to do.  Strong emphasis on "still".

If Izo doesn't join the mailing list, Cory I ask that you CC Jorge on last
or next message to bring him into the loop.
