[opensource-dev] Quiet amendments of TPV (again)

Boy,

There was nothing quiet, or "in the background" about it, believe me.  This
update is the topic of conversation at the noon PDT brown bag I'm hosting
today.  The changes were pushed live ahead of the meeting, so there would be
no question they are incorporated in to the TPV and TOS, both of which are
effective on 4/30.

I'll see those of you still interested in the subject at noon here:
