Adrian proposed a general "get people together and work in the same direction" idea. Peps are more like "ive got this and that working and i'd like to get it in", os it seems to me.

I am more for a place to work together on new ideas. I really liked that part of Adrians proposal. If, whether or when that causes more administrative overhead, we can sort that out. But IMNSHO going for a "tackle this issue together" system is what we should aim for, in the first place.

It is what got that form API in. It is what holds back Those Big Issues from leveraging from yadiyadia level to Real Code Level, think drupal.css, think taxonomy.module cleanup, think CCK ideals, think install API. etcetc. 

I firmly beleive we reached a level where we can no longer deal with Big Changes, unless we form subgroups. Which, again, is what I got, this is all about. I hope so in any way.

If this is only about getting more structured and more official administration in place, then I think we should at least start that "subgroup thingy" project rolling, now. Administration might help, but a place to work efficient, quick, efficient and dedicated, on a certain issue helps much much more, IMNSHO.
