of different features in what they're doing, and helping to clarify
what's important. Where my added value is as someone in the "business"
of making Squeak better, not too technically involved in any specific
- Occaisonally start discussions about those larger, harder to integrate
pieces of work, like network rewrites, compiler changes and so forth.
Again, representing the position of how do we make Squeak better,
without getting into a mess.
- Raising awareness - both by summerizing what's been discussed, and by
following up on things that happen.

I don't think these roles are very coupled - we can definitely share in
