1) I believe it is unfair to put Chris in the situation of making

Shelton is the one you should be talking to. Ted asked for feedback on

2) Since we are having a vote and NewCo has two archives, InterBase has
one, I think that the original archive mine should be included in this
vote<g>. After all Firebird is a copy of mine and and Firebird Ashes is
a messed up copy of mine<vbg>.
