What if we kept the standards discussion on this general mailing list, but set up a little page on the wiki where we could keep some more permanent notes.

Might I ask, what will a separate list accomplish that posting on just
the main OSGeo list won't? Standards are a sufficiently important
subject that all should be concerned with it, and definitely
knowledgeable about.

Managing all these separate lists is becoming a pain in the derrière
for me. I would rather see and participate in the standards discussion
right here on the OSGeo discussion list.
