I don't think this is crazy at all, J-W :)
The last sprint left everyone wondering about the future.
We had discussions but no real direction, so I'd be interested in taking
part in such a sprint.
As most of you know, I'm no longer using plain Grok, but that doesn't
prevent me to want to contribute.
