Stephen Watt has considerable depth of experience in the computer algebra community, having
been involved with at least three development groups at significant levels.
He has a reputation for thinking things through carefully, and the proposal will be

Also, working through him might possibly be be one of the most effective routes to synchronizing
objectives of openmath and this committee, thereby providing a broader basis.
