Hi Lixia,

it is going to be tight for me with the holidays around the corner
(and other projects) - it would be easier if you provide a template
with titles e.g. based upon
Then we could fill explanations of how the proposal is dealing with
each issue and in the end perhaps there is some additional field where
the author can highlight some other issues that don't have an own
And it would be easier for you to compare the proposals.

But this is only a suggestion, don't know how others feel about this approach.
