Who would disagree with the following decisions?

 1.  When TeX Live 2004 is released, we freeze the Perforce repository 
and migrate it to CVS on sarovar.
       Or possibly Subversion, if Radhakrishnan is interested

 2.  We declare the TeX Live documentation to be entirely public domain. 
We all give up
       whatever copyright we ever thought we held. Let it go.

 3. We work towards a release in which all TeXish programs are linked to 
pdfetex, with the exception of "tex" itself.  So if you type "tex", you 
get Knuth's unadulterated original. if you type latex, etex, pdftex, 
frlatex, whatever, you get pdfetex. The only difference is that the pdf* 
ones have format file configurations in which output is set to PDF.
