Hi Jeff,

Well, Evan is certainly a member of the community.  I don't think he
meant to step on any toes.

I intended to suggest only what Derrick's comments summarized, not new
mechanisms to submit architecture proposals, so I'll leave it there.

An new mechanism I'd benefit from would be scheduled openafs conference
developer meetings between hackathons.  I think that would help us make
more steady progress on tasks like libosi integration.  That certainly
doesn't require a TAC, but it would probably require a bit of time
commitment from some subset of active developers to be useful.
