Thanks for taking the time to address my questions. One last question 
inline below...

I could not find any trace of a vote to approve the PSC document. The 
minutes of the first IRC meeting mention that Bob was going to update 
the PSC doc and send a motion for vote on the list (presumably meaning 
fdo-psc list at the time). Unfortunately the fdo-psc list archives seem 
to have been lost when fdo-dev + fdo-psc merged into what is currently 
fdo-internals. I found some fdo-psc emails around that date in my 
personal archives but nothing about a vote to approve the PSC doc.

I don't want to be a pain about this, just want to make sure that the 
PSC doc that's currently at http://fdo.osgeo.org/psc.html is final and 
has been approved. If that's the case then the [Draft] in the title 
should be removed since that suggests that the doc has not been approved 
yet. Also, the MapGuide PSC doc (http://mapguide.osgeo.org/psc.html) has 
a clear header stating that it has been adopted, the current revision 
number and the last revision date. I think it would be good to have that 
for FDO as well.
