I think a change of culture is needed too. I have been pondering on
reaffirming, promoting and consolidating core values for a while,
perhaps with the help of some sort of documentation, such as the "GNOME
Developer Guidelines". I imagine this covering things such as being nice
to one another, defining roles, coding practises and whatnot...

Does it ? Perhaps I have not been clear... Are you referring to the
announcement list ?

I don't think discussions can be announced on the announcement list. Is
there another list I am unaware of ? I am suggesting a place where new
discussions can be announced long before any decision has taken place.
