Thanks for putting this together.  Let's press on to finish up this

Your list of consensus looks pretty good.  There are a few small
things I will get to later.  I don't have any strong objection to what
you list.

If anyone has strong objections, please voice them now or your silence
will be interpreted as agreement.  Thanks.

... Mark
