I know what you mean, I'm way beyond fumes but the urgency keeps me going.

Is that still the case ?  Has the interest faded so much ?  If the problem
(or lack of interest) is still there, how best to conquer it and/or how
best to deal with it so as not to short-change Arabeyes' progress.  Should
we institute annual elections or a rotating member seat or ...  Seriously,
I don't like talking about all of this, but this has become a serious enough
issue to where we need to solve it since I continue to believe that we'll
get our act together again soon and then after X weeks/months will end up
in the same position we are all in now (the archives will testify to that).

Again, this is a 'core' discussion and is not a 'nadim-mohammed' exchange.
