Plans may be useless, but planning can be very useful indeed. Any major changes to upstart first need to be written down in the form of a specification, and discussed until a consensus or decision is reached. This process allows us to get all our thoughts in order and figure out any problems before we actually implement them.

Specifications should be registered at, the URL of the specification should point to a page on this wiki created with the SpecTemplate template.
