But did not New York GA call for support of this? Vlad's email said it
did, I am currently unable to find minutes from last night's GA, was
this passed at GA?
At the moment I will just use site to echo and report information from
other locations. I do not see the harm in having a website to support
what has already been consensed by one GA.
