meetings we approved the content of k5wiki.kerberos.org as a starting
direction. The main thing that gives us as a project management
policy, a realese pullup policy and dispute resolution guidelines.
At that meeting some concerns were raised about the choice of

that existing policies are actually approved, etc.
