Interesting notes regarding this type of case:
> I don't think it's the right thing to pro-actively file a dispute to get > a ruling before anything is done. I agree with this. In this sense, Members should file disputes to get the ruling as oversight over what they want done, and not to get the Arbitrator to finish the job. If there is no clarity in what they want done, then it cannot be oversighted, almost by definition. > I suggest the board makes up it's > decision on this. Sure, in its executive capacity, it can be asked. Likely however the board will say no as well. Part of the problem is that the proposal is not apparently finished / clear, and therefore we can't confirm. Another part of the problem is that we don't have the resources right now to help other projects.
