*shrug* I have always considered core a steering committee type of
deal. Not "in charge" persay but there as a focal point when needed
(like the name change decision that was finally made).

It seems to me that it makes sense, based on that to break it out.

However there is another consideration in that at least two core
members seem to have zero interest in being involved in a very public
way like you suggest above. So perhaps it makes sense for core to be
inclusive of the list and instead push all "contacts" to a contacts
page.

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
