Have the folks using this for audio sent a reservation request as well?
If not, I'd say the first requester should get the id...
No but I think they ship their's already. No one ships pmem
so it's less pain for everyone if we just skip 25.
(And yes, we need to be quicker with voting on/applying id
We can't vote on what was not proposed for a vote.
At the moment that responsibility is with the commented
once discussion on the comment has taken place.
I think what's missing is a description of the process
in the README. Want to write it up and post it?
