To both this and Dims's concerns, I actually think we need some place
to just come and ask "guys, is this fine?". If answer would be "let's
talk on ML because it's important", that's cool, but on the other hand
sometimes simple "yes" would suffice. Not all conversations with TC
requires mailing thread, but I'd love to have some "semi-official" TC
space where I can drop question, quickly discuss cross-project issues
and such.
