Thanks Chris and Matt for your inputs.

It sounds like we could benefit from a mailing list feature that is also synced up with a web-based forums discussion. This helps to cleanly manage concurrent discussion threads. All postings online are mailed to the list. Email replies to the the list also show up in the forums.

The OpenSearch Google Groups seems to leverage this feature:
It's more like gmail-style discussion threads applied towards mailing lists.

I think we need to be able to do concurrent, as some DCP discussions may go on for a while.

I have plans to do a micro-DCP for daynightflag...

These are intended to be mostly formatting/grammar changes and not specification changes. Since there were no outcries during the voting, this should go quick. Shall we say one day for final review, and we'll ratify DCP-1 in 24-hours?
