Correction: as project, repo, and issue tracker already exist, request
is limited to mailing list and repo sync. Issue number is 1913

We didn't arrive at any specific agreement on how to review such large
updates. There was general agreement that we needed to break these down
into less than a dozen or half-a-dozen changesets so that reviewers can
focus and feedback be clear and manageable in distinguishing changes
that need corrections and those that are ready to commit.

We did not, however, agree on how these should be organized. This would
also help in distributing work so that one person doesn't have to
responsible for the lot of it going forward. Feedback by mail is
welcome. Once agreed, issues can be submitted for tracking changes.
