to the PEOPLE - yes. to the mailing list? that would kind of make it
useless, wouldn't it?

THAT is what we have agreed upon. that a style guide before it is put into
the gnome distribution or somewhere really public, has to be in a finished
me and one or two others have explicitly stated that this list is NOT
considered "general public" and does not want to be confronted with a final
document to nod at.

the creative process and the quality of a document might INCREASE with the
number of people involved (up to a certain limit and depending on what
people, blah - we all know that).

I really, really, REALLY believe this list should have a part in the style
guide aside from seing the final version five minutes earlier than everyone
else. if this is not so, I can not see the purpose of this list. so maybe we
should make clear exactly what this list is all about before we go around
throwing in time and effort and then starting flame wars because it didn't
meet our expectations.

The universe does not have laws -- it has habits, and habits can be broken.
