The "us" refers to the discussants, the people to whom Heather sent mail 
initiating this discussion. (Please see below.)

Yes, I'm essentially asking for an estimate of the time it would take to put 
the domain issue in order. As you point out, I'm not in a position to "place 
demands or limits  on other volunteers" nor am I doing so. 

By the way, the above discussion was initiated by Heather in attempt to 
resolve some of the  domain issues. She explicitly wanted this discussion 
kept out of the 'volunteers' list. She said..."... it has been loudly 
expressed that the volunteers@ mail is
public space.  Ergo, this is not public mail.  I'm sorry to have to be
so blunt about it." She went on to discuss some domain issues.

Why have you violdated her request and taken this matter public on the 
volunteers list? It's a matter that can be resolved by a smaller number of 
people just as Heather has attempted.

Thank you for the invitation to public discussion but I'll deferr that for

Rather than move the whole discussion of the domain management here 
(volunteers), I'll just say that I think it can be put in order with less 
than an hour of work.
