Gee, thanks, Jerry ... glad to hear that Ben did it all by himself.  I thought only Philip held that view.
<p>Maybe I *should* step down, sheesh ...

Really?  Yet earlier you said ...
It is almost certainly the case that having a more formal organization would involve asking you and Ben to have less control over certain OpenACS
I'm having some trouble reconciling these two statements, sorry.
<p>If Ben's big sin is the fact that he doesn't always answer e-mail promptly, I fail to see how a steering committee elected by the community would cause his e-mail to be answered more quickly.  The cure seems remarkably unrelated to the disease.
<p>Besides which, I *do* answer e-mail promptly, and you can always e-mail me if you don't get an answer from Ben ...
