Very wise opinion.

Speaking as a member of the Engagement team I think OPW is really
really  great but that don't necessarily means that GNOME should have
the administrative responsibility as it apparently put extra pressure
on GNOME's already strained resources (speaking here primarily about
the board members time).

One must also think one of take into take into account the
exceptionally growth of the program, I do not think the original
organizers could envision such sucess when the program was started but
the questions is now how to best move the program forward.
