You've actually been there quite a bit the last week or so. :)

Yes, I agree.  That's something I need to work on.  I'm lucky enough to be
one of those folks who could get on IRC from work, and it's quite easy to
throw out an idea or two at an off moment and let people discuss in the
hour or two before you get time to look at that window again.  It's a
little more effort to type up an email. :)

Informing the list was actually the reason the Road to 2.18 thread was
started. :)
