Thanks for pointing to that, Martin. I have to say I’m heartened to hear (read) about those plans. I have proposed this at an SPI Board meeting a few years ago and gotten zero traction. So, very happy to hear that it is being considered in earnest now. The only thing I would throw in here is that “doing more”, although nice, needn’t be the major argument in favor from my perspective. Simply just doing reliably, timely, and responsively what SPI commits itself to already in terms of services for projects would be an enormous plus. And if this were the result, I’d have no objections to raising SPI’s fee either (provided the increase is within reason :-)
