I agree. Changes to procedures are not helpful at this point and will most
likely result in another drawn out debate.
As programmers/software people we seem to have a tendency to change
processes rather than dealing with the other issues that are not "coded"

We need to work within the existing framework first to get some people on
board that are actually willing to do something and then move things ahead.
Joey's initial approach of wanting to have new leadership is exactly what is
needed. Let us follow through on it.

Organize a few people that have the desire to get involved with SPI. If they
can properly communicate among themselves and come up with actionable ideas
then they will surely be able to get things going. The mailing list
discussion with people coming and going and throwing in one idea after
another is not helping.

I am willing to get involved but only if we can get a core set of people
together. I am not interested in wasting my time with endless discussions.
