I was just going to suggest that. We could have two or even three relays going simultaneously, perhaps even by different Relay Masters. Back in the fall of 1999, the Bast Relay with 22 people took a long time, and it was even more difficult to post all the translations and make a web for them. Relays with twelve people each would be more manageable, and would introduce enough change.
