Sounds good to me. It would be really helpful if the secretary could add a
reminder about this policy when sending out the email assigning a shepherd,
to ensure we don't forget.

> Hi,
> based on this discussion I am making a concrete proposal here:
> https://github.com/ghc-proposals/ghc-proposals/pull/221
> The main idea is that if the shepherd intends to reject the proposal,
> they have to first discuss this with the authors, to give the authors a
> chance to respond, tweak, or point out misunderstandings in the
> shepherd’s perception.
> So the process of accepting proposals is unchanged, and still on the
> list, rejecting a proposal is now a two step process: the shepherd
> discusses it with the authors on GitHub (and anyone else interested, of
> course), and then there is a shorter discussion on the mailinglist,
> with hopefully all facts clarified.
> This does not move all discussion to Github yet, so it is the smaller
> change, in a way. But of course committee members are encouraged to
> join GitHub discussions early, especially if they are unhappy with a
> proposal.
> Cheers,
> Joachim
