Fear, uncertainty, doubt - I personally would have assigned those traits
to those who are spreading rumours. Not to those who want to stop the
rumours (or get a confirmation for them, but I haven't seen one).

If that is true, then IMHO the new-maintainer team has not been acting as
they should. A decision of this nature *must* be announced, at least to
the developership. I am on -devel-announce and on other relevant lists,
and I have not seen such an announcement, and nobody has pointed me to
one I might have missed, although I have asked.
(No, IRC is not a proper forum for this kind of an announcement.)
