Inconsistencies in new project process

Hello all,

while going through the project proposal for Shenandoah, I noticed some
inconsistencies or confusing details in the new project process
described here:

- it says 'Step 0: Discuss [optional]' but then in that same paragraph
'At least one Group Lead must declare that their Group is a sponsor of
the proposed Project.' Now what is it? Optional or must?

- It says 'Eligible voters cast their vote by sending e-mail to the
general discussion list. Replying to the proposal will achieve this
automatically for those people whose mail programs honor the
Reply-To header.'

Is this done automatically, or does the nominator have to put the Reply
-To header in his proposal? Would be good to clarify this.

- "Votes must be cast in the open, on the mailing list to which the
call-for-votes was originally sent"

This seems to be in conflict with voting on the discuss mailing list
(the CFV is sent to announce).

Could those parts be clarified?

Best regards,
Roman Kennke
