Following up on the discussion about at GCDS and the 
additional input on the mailing list, I wrote down a specification for the 
process how to manage specifications. It's based on the 
consensus we built at GCDS plus the input which came from Aaron and others 
before and after the meetings.

To bootstrap the process I wrote it down as a specification 
following the proposed process. You can find the text at

Please have a look and comment.

The next step would be to work in your comments, and when this is done to 
merge it back to the main repository and get approval by the release teams.
