This section seems missing in the minutes. Are you still going to review this in near term?

We are moving process of proposing such things to public via GitHub, however this specific proposal was done via internal process and we did’t have enough time to make it external yet, but we will at some point. Our goal to make sure that in 2-3 core maintainer reviews there will be no more cases like this when core maintainers have to review something that is not yet fully public.
