If you are referring to my comment that I didn't like the idea of
*spending* money on t-shirts, I apologize. It really seems like there
are better uses of sponsorship money to me - and I liked all the others
on that page. If others believe that putting t-shirts at the top of the
list is a good idea, I don't want to stop anyone.
I think we've probably gotten all the feedback that we're going to
(easily) get on the proposal. I think everybody likes the idea, and I
think it will get an easy approval in a vote.
I'm sure we can always tweak the language - both in the proposal and in
our wiki page about how we plan to spend the money.
