Soumyadip, I had seen your email address in the TO section of the email sent
by A. Mani, and all of us I think had confirmed our roles, except you.

Mani, Wiki was proposed by me (and I think Sankarshan had also suggested
it). AFAIK Soumyadip never suggested anything directly, but I remember him
once writing that he wanted something which is more open to contributions from
everyone. Especially in response to Mani's spec, which still haven't been
accepted by the admins or ilug-cal. AFAIK, the specs are just a proposal now.

CMT? Even I am in dark about it. I think the admins are the only CMT team, or

And if you are thinking of the post by Mani long back, AFAIK then no one
accepted that and please it wasn't a _combined_ decision; it was only his

Mani, while writing emails and ideas please don't sound as you are speaking
for the entire admin team. Thanks.
