No worries. It seems everybody is somewhat unclear on the details of
this proposal. Making it hard for people not to speculate a
little. And it seems the scope changed between when various "key
stakeholders" were informed, the LF/IT presentation, the Cauldron talk
and what eventually got posted.

That is why we are trying to collect all details and file sourceware
infrastructure bugs to track the various technical needs from a
community perspective. But it would be really nice to hear directly
from the Linux Foundation and the OpenSSF about what exactly they are
proposing, which parts of the proposal are mandatory, which can be
mixed and matched, and how they see this working together with
Sourceware becoming a Software Freedom Conservancy member
project.

Cheers,

Mark
