Eee gads, the charter, ,
includes many guidelines.

Packages are treated as separate releasable products?  Is that really
the case?  ie. Rule/Guideline "4. Each package is treated as a product
in its own right. 4.1.  Each package has its own status file, release
schedule, version number, QA tests, documentation, mailing list, bug
category, and individual JAR. "

Humm, I can't really do a proposal as I am not a commiter to Modeler.

Checking the "STATUS.html" shows "Craig McClanahan, Remy Maucherat, Amy
Roh" as commiters - who is the release manager?  (my money goes on

Costin, Is version 1.0.1 appropriate, or something higher (based on the
nature of your improvements) ?  FYI, you aren't in the STATUS.html
(Charter guideline 15 says "Each committer has karma to all the
packages, but committers are required to add their name to a package's
status file before their first commit to that package.")

Humm, bugzilla says "Zarro Boogs found." for "Commons/Modeler."   Does
anyone have any pending enhancement requests?
