+1, i completely agree with ross here.

also, and quite frankly, i don't really see the problem:  we talked  
about changing the fwt process to allow externals reviewers, and we  
agreed (iirc).  we also talked about extending the PLIP process to  
consider and put more emphasize on UI and documentation issues.  we  
also agreed here.  putting these two together makes it not necessary  
for an explicit UI experts to be part of the fwt anymore.  so while i  
agree that the new team is more technically oriented the specific  
individual skillsets involved don't really matter that much.  imho,  
it's primarily more about dedication (or should we say a passing for  
plone? :)) and the will to put in enough time and energy.  of course,  
technical skills will greatly help when reviewing code — and i expect  
there will be quite a lot of it to review — but that's another story...

anyhow, i think the only thing that's missing is that we go ahead and  
decided on the new processes and document them.  once the PLIP process  
is refined UI issues (to stick with the original critique) must be  
considered, and if the necessary skills are not sufficient amongst the  
team, well, then some external reviewers need to be found to do the  
job...  the same might be true for technical and other issues as well.
