As you might know (or not), I'm not a member of the inclusive team and have 
not collaborated on the draft. I'm asking questions to get an informed opinion 
and to see how it aligns with my opinion.

I asked identical questions to both proposals. On one I got a good answer and 
didn't ask further question, on the other I didn't. So I continued to ask 
questions as I still don't really understand what it will mean for me and the 
projects I'm working on.

Because of that I would highly appreciate if you would answer my questions and 
not hijack my thread to ask questions on another proposal.

Thank you!

Martin
