Re: FC2 release dates

I took the weekend off (horrors!) so this may seem a bit late :-)

My first goal is to refine the definitions of the groups.  I think that
we'll end up with different names and a slightly different structure;
we might not have the "Advisory Committee" per se (name is confusing
and some of the delineation seems a bit artificial) so I'm making some
proposals that I need to get Steering Committee approval for.

My intent is to roll out better definitions soon before worrying about
final membership.

Absolutely worth consideration.  I just wanted to present our reasons
because one of the points of the new regime is to not appear arbitrary
by keeping silent about our reasons...  (I don't think we've every
really been arbitrary, but I know it has looked that way sometimes.)
