As you noticed, most of us are reading this list on a daily base ;-),
so this is the preferred medium for general discussion as it also adds
the vast knowledge of lots of other contributors and users.

Should you (or someone else) want to raise a private issue with the SC
or ask the SC for a decision if discussions on the lists have not led
to a clear conclusion, you can always contact a SC member of your
choice who will then forward that request.

However, note that the SC should not (and will not) interfere with day
to day work -- for that we have lots of highly qualified maintainers
and critical users. :-)

FWIW, that makes three global write commiters/four SC members that view
your proposal as useful in principle, if I've counted correctly. ;-)
