There has been some great input from many people about this idea of a community run group.
I have been doing my best to stay as neutral as possible. My only intention here is to coordinate the ideas of the group into action.
The Poll idea was not to use it as an official vote, but just to get an idea of what people wanted. Both ideas were mentioned by various people, and the poll was put there as an aid.
The premise of this group was never clearly defined. Let me clarify that statement; we all know what the intention of the "idea" of the group is, but what about this group in particular?
It was either:
A: A stepping stone to hash out processes for maintaining a group of this nature. After all that was hashed out then take this structure to a brand new group and let it roll.
B: To physically experiment with the ideas, and processes that are needed to have a group of this nature. Then either: Maintain this as "the" group, or create a brand new one and take it from there.
So, does the community want to use this strictly as a tool for creating the structure then implent that stucture into a totally new group?
Or, does the community want to implement this structure in this group to see how it works, and slowly shape it to meet the communities best interests.
These are some issues that are coming up. I am sure there are more that need to be addressed as well. This is a great place to make them known.
If you think I am being to controlling here let me know. One person has mentioned this to me already. I do not think I am personally, I am just trying to put the ideas that I see a general consensus of into some sort of motion.
Personally I would rather have a "direction" to move in, a goal or goals, if you will. It clarifies whether we are going anywhere or just in circles. I never cared too much for treadmills.

Mike - I don't think keeping it in this group is antithethical to having goals. This whole thing won't be presented for public consumption until we have everything worked out, anyway.....IMO
