But those things (whether true or not) are not relevant.  You don't
get to declare policy, any more than George Bush does.  Pointing out
that George Bush is a nasty human being doesn't somehow turn you into
the decider-for-gnumach.

I'm simply reminding people of this fact.

But this prompts me to say that, in my judgment, Thomas Schwinge
should be invited if he is willing to be an official approver of
patches.  This was discussed last fall, but it did not reach a final
decision, in part because my work load became extremely heavy.

Thomas, if you are willing, please say so, and then we'll declare this
official.  Marcus and Roland have already agreed this is sensible, so
there was no reason for delay except that my workload caused it to get
bumped from my attention-queue.
