Thanks Dan.  I'll put it on the list to review.

The table is a great summary, but even with it available, I still
think it would be worth a note to the email list when there's a
significant addition or change.

As the number of these extensions increases, so does the amount of
overlap among them, so there's a real need for review by others
besides just the proposers.
