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!  :)
