I support the aims, although I think that the timescale is too brief
for an elegant activity which should endure.
I was not particularly aware that the *activity* to progress this was
again happening just now.

I take it that the initiating actions did not have a timescale stated
(?) A list or forum timescale will need to be something like a week or
more - people are away, etc etc (or much longer). I would generally
suggest a month from a cold start, but this is not cold.

The voting should happen here, surely, unless the whole activity takes
place elsewhere? For example, I am set up to handle things - here, not
anywhere else. Changes (for me) will take time, I do not have that
just now. Let us keep it simple?
