Oh dear! I was NOT being critical or I was not trying to be anyway, I was
only trying to help get things going in a constructive way in-line with the
Ubuntu way of doing things. The information is for all of us here, I was not
pointing it out to be critical of any specific person or group. I am very
sorry if it came across like that. I was of the opinion we were in a
re-organizational stage here as it has been very quiet for a long time. I
also am a twinkle in the eye type of person so please don't think of me as
someone who goes about picking on people. ;)

Perhaps others were also unaware. Isn't it better to have a few good workable
guidelines to help us with direction? As an old programmer, I was always
more happy when I DIDN'T have to re-invent a wheel!! That is not to say I
couldn't improve a design if needed. :)

It takes all of us thinking we are no "better than anyone else" to make a
successful group. And we are all learning, I think when one stops learning,
he is dead! Hopefully, none of us are in THAT condition! :)
