Fwiw, as someone mentioned on IRC y'day, UW is not a technical team
making technical decisions related to the OS per se. So while its good
to have blueprint+UDS process, its crucial to engage the _existing_
women base (namely, forum and list members) _while_  seeking to get
newcomers and community members. They are not exclusively disjunct.

I just checked the IRC discussion logs and dont recall anyone proposing this.

They did however point out lacunae in the process (discussions held on
unlogged irc) and agreed that this should be rectified and IIRC, you
were also one of the people who suggested the "process" discussions be
taken to the mailing list. *shrug*
