The current approach is, perhaps a touch clunky but its stable and
predictable as a service. Mailing lists and wikis have been around for a
long time. There are almost identical services available if we were
forced to stop using one.

Loomio looks good but apparently its been around since 2014. What will
it look like in a year's time ?

I think we need to play safe. I'll bet jbpacker thinks that's because
I'm old ! (guilty as accused Your Honour)
