Charles Stewart has CLRFI Snippets#

Charles Stewart has CLRFI Snippets. I think it's good that the CLRFI process has visibility (i.e. that people are saying "this should be a CLRFI" instead of "this should be in the next revision of the standard"), but writing a decent proposal is a lot more work than simply suggesting one should be written, and even getting constructive feedback has been a battle. My previous experience has been - to paraphrase Ghandhi's oft-quoted saying - that first they argue with you about the package name, then they take your text and use it without attribution. If stage 3 is "then you win", we haven't reached that just yet.
