This is the first I have heard that this was happening, so I will restrict
comment for now to the one point which glares at me from above...

Suggesting the "he" has not been able to achieve this end through the self
regulating forum implies that they are _his_ own self serving objectives.
That is most definitely not true.  Indeed, on this mailing list I have not
seen one shred of support for an arbitrary renewal date come from anyone
outside of Melbourne IT, on the contrary the majority have been crying for a
more fair method - the best we have heard so far being the anniversary method.

All indications I had seen previously pointed to Melbourne IT steaming ahead
with the arbitrary renewal date in spite of all objections.   I'm glad to
hear that sanity may yet prevail...
