Transcripts of Something New videos, podcasts, speeches, etc

Who decides what to accept? So, surely anybody can come along and type in anything they want, somebody can go and say, let's bring back capital punishment, and they can. But, it won't necessarily get accepted because what we do is we allow the existing contributors to decide what goes in. And again, this is very similar to an open source model where anyone can make a submission into your bit of software, but in order to keep the whole bit of software working in the same way, going in the same direction, producing the thing you're supposed to, there's sort of guidance from that existing pool of contributors. So that's what we do here as well. You need to gain the approval of the existing contributors in order to get your change in, but once your change is in, obviously, you are one of those contributors and you immediately get a vote.
