That, and it might be acceptable to start with a consensus based model for accepting PEPs at first. That would help in getting it clearer what we really need going forward (which as several people have stated is more than just deciding on PEPs).  That would mean that contentious PEPs would have to wait longer, but that isn’t necessarily a bad idea.

FWIW I agree with Nathaniel and Marc-Andre.
