I agree with those who say: give them time. I understand that the 
founding group works full steam on creating a documented concept that 
can be shown to the community, and that will serve as a base to set up 
an organisation.

I guess that the amount of time needed for formulating the concept, 
building consensus (and first within the founding group) will be a 
surprise to those who do this work (I have done this kind of exercise 2 
times in my life: Switch and Dante). If this guess is right, it might be 
a good idea if the founding group finds a good moment to take a snapshot 
and submit it as an interim document to discussion in this list. There 
will and must be a discussion, better have it in an organised way and 
soon - on the base of a document.

Until such a snapshot (or the concept itself) is available, the 
discussion in this list is valuable to feed input and ideas into the 
work of the founding group - posts that are guesses on what might be the 
state of mind the founding group risk to drown the constructive 
contributions in a background of noise. I know, it is not noise, it 
expresses committment and preoccupation - but its effect comes to be noise.
