I guess the participants would:
1. Talk, draft and vote till they have a consensus of 5,000, or so
2. Sign the consensus draft as a petition
3. Submit the petition
Is that correct?

Currently we have only an alpha prototype. To develop it into a beta
for this application, we'd need to work closely with a small number of
alpha users. We'd need at least 2 more than we have now. They'd be
surfacing problems and participating in the design of solutions.

Hosting of the beta deployment shouldn't be a problem. The admins
would have time to decide on that. Do you have deadlines? Or what
are your expectations timewise?
