As I just said on another thread[1], I'd like to discourage the use of 
this mailing list for expressing sentiments of +1.  Instead, I would 
encourage everybody to review all proposals and decide which ones they 
would object to, identify with as much precision as possible the reasons 
why they would object to those proposals, and (if at all possible) 
identify what changes could be made to those proposals which would 
result in a proposal that they could support.

Note that in the above I said "this mailing list".  There are plenty of 
other venues for doing what Shelley suggests: create a wiki page, use 
www-archive, IRC, twitter, email, phone, meetups, whatever.
