Thanks, all fixed.

Interesting idea, but I don't see type-user-development as being
useful.  If somebody wannts a certain behavior -- for whatever
reason -- then IMO that's a plain enhancement request.

I'll leave the door open to discussing this in a future GOP
proposal, though.  But right now I want to get the "remove
priorities" proposal passed without getting derailed.

But I don't care about user priorities... ok, I've changed this to
"reminding users about stars", and rewritten it in with a more
netural one.

I used this instead:
We can remind users that they can @qq{star} an issue to indicate
that they care about it.  Since we resolved to treat developers as
independent volunteers, there is no expectation that anybody will
look at those stars, but if any developer want to organize their
work schedule according to the stars, they are welcome to do so.

I like the reminder about GOP-PROP 7.  (well, not an explicit
reminder, but it's still there in the "independent volunteers"

New version uploaded, and the final one will be tomorrow.
