SPI resolution


1. liaison is written with three vowels in a row.

2. liaison is mispelled near-systematically on the SPI mailing lists by non French speakers.

3. this is bound to irritate the small number of French speakers which are subscribed
   to the SPI mailing lists (which, by the way, are wondering how English people 
   pronounce it, assuming they can) even when they have an English-looking first name.

4. there are less Latin speakers than French speakers subscriber to SPI mailing lists.


1. the word liaison will be replaced by ligatio in all SPI documents.

2. the non-words liason, laison and laiason will also be replaced by ligatio in
   all SPI documents for consistency.

3. A small number of mispelling of ligatio will be encouraged to avoid an
   entropy imbalance.

Respectfully submitted,
Bill "no middle name" Allombert.
