Hi Matthew,

> it seems to me that we could get 80% of the way to a reassuring blueprint with a relatively small amount of effort.

My sentence "adapt the typical academic rule for conflicts of
interests to PRs, that non-trivial ones cannot be merged by someone
who has a conflict of interest with the author, i.e., it cannot be a
superviser, someone from the same institute, etc." was meant as a
suggestion for part of this blueprint!

I'll readily admit, though, that since I'm not overly worried, I
haven't even looked at the policies that are in place, nor do I intend
to contribute much beyond this e-mail. Indeed, it may be that the old
adage "every initiative is punishable" holds here... would you, or one
of the others who feels it is important to have a blueprint, be
willing to provide a concrete text for discussion?

All the best,
