I hate to break it to you, but everyone I've talked to hates that web
site. wm-spec-list already exists, is the perfect method for discussing
the specification, and is convenient & open. The web site is awkward to
use, still isn't totally open for all to access, and requires people to
remember Yet Another Password in order to manipulate.

You're trying to use fancy technology to solve the problem of poor
management, and it won't work :) From what I gather, things are pretty
close to being finalized - all that is left is to decide on and achieve a
final milestone or two. You've achieved encouraging results so far - now
go for a strong finish.

Please don't shoot the messenger, :)

The first thing a programmer needs to admit is that any program is by far
more complex than his own mind. Thats why he partitions it into neat
pieces and avoids complexity.
