And by "myself", for those who weren't involved and are probably going
"what the...", he means himself with the help of ryan, trelane (for

No which site.  Establish what's good about everything that's been
proposed, establish what's not so good about everything that's been
proposed, establish what needs to be addressed which hasnt been by any
