So, is this template ready to be put before the board and considered for
approval? Is there anything that should change before this happens? Can I
assume that, if someone was strongly against this template, I would have
heard about it by now?
One final question: should this be published with the documentation and
examples that I put together for the approval process, or should it just be
published in its bare form?
For the list archive, here is the template in its absolute barest form,
copied from the web page:
