We have to disagree, then.

Right now, I see two proposals, one that was created before we had a
procedure in place. The whole purpose of the procedure was to manage
disagreement, and allow for multiple proposals or counter-proposals.

If the initial proposal creators drop their proposal, we're still
faced with a new change proposal: one put forth by Ian. He has to go
through this process the same as the rest of the team. He is not above
the procedures of this group, don't you agree?

The Issue Tracker is the only way to track an issue, assign a
responsibility, and ensure something has not fallen through the
cracks, like the initial 2D Canvas split did.

How else are we supposed to track assignments, responsibilities, and
due dates, Maciej?
