While I am tempted to rebut your statement, I think it would be bad form
to do so until we have determined an answer to this question: can you
explain how we are not re-litigating the RFP itself, the agreement on
the charter, and the resulting work?  I ask because I don't see how
discussing any of those three is going to result in any sort of decision
making by this group.
