Hi all,

Thanks Simon for the proposal, it would be an efficient way to elaborate
from some of the topics discussed in the (relative) heat of the election
discussions in a more appeased forum, narrow our mutual understandings on
differences on those topics and ideally make progresses.
I'd be interested to contribute in these work items regardless of where
they'll be tackled in the OSMF.
