Dave, I fully accept the spirit of your post and of Beman's preceeding posts
and I think I pretty much get the gist. However, the implication ofn the above
is that if I am not a member of the committee then my proposal is at a
disadvantage because I can not lobby on the reflectors.
Could you or Beman elaborate on the position of a boost member who is not a
member of the comittee and the process that they can follow for making
a proposal to the committee without being a member.
Are we at a disadvantage?
