That's certainly not the case. We did discuss that it's important for 
FWT members to seek wider community input, but that's hardly radical or 
new. We did not discuss the process directly.

I think it's the release manager prerogative to suggest changes to the 
process to fit the way he wants to manage the release. However, I think 
we're due a consolidation and documentation of these (still-proposed, I 
hope) changes so that everyone is on board. It's good to discuss the 
changes as we're doing now, and to propose new ways of working. However, 
I think we risk confusing more casual readers of our mailing lists if we 
don't arrive at one document that people can comment upon.
