Hi Ian. If you look at the resolutions (see link below) you will see the
same wording used in virtually every resolution accepting a project over
the last few years.
While I don't object to your objection (really) I did want to point out
that this phrase has been in use in resolutions for a long time so I was
surprised to see the objection appear now.
If the board doesn't object, I'm happy to refer this to SPI counsel for
advice. This will happen in parallel to the current proposal of course.

I did a major clean up on the associated project howto in late 2011. I
added content, reorganised it and split it into three documents.
The original version of the document can be found here:
I understand that Josh Berkus wrote the original version. My suspicion is
that the 'proposal template' in question predates this.
