I think back in March I reminded Perry how to revise the Tite ODD so 
that it used Tite-specific examples. This was not a new mechanism -- 
it's one that's been present since the first releases of P5. So there 
was no need to wait for the TEI to establish anything: just use the 
tools that are already there.

Like Sebastian, I remember that the Council did actually spend quite a 
lot of time and effort discussing how to make Tite "official" at its 
meeting in Berlin and subsequently.

I don't remember any acrimony in Michigan. Maybe I was in the wrong bar. 
My suggestion about litigation was not particularly bad-tempered -- In 
just find it ironic that at the same time as we were agonising over 
whether or not the GPL was what we wanted to use, the GPL was being 
openly flouted by the text of every page of the Tite Spec. (and I have 
every confidence in Kevin's ability to resolve that particular issue)

Dan, can we have an update on this? Is someone reviewing "Apex's 
schema"? will the council see the result? when?
