Yet it is the forum where everyone *is* involved. This is an open
project, I hope.

That means we who are not in that private forum have no information
about what's going on — or even whether *anything* is going on. If those
who are discussing it in private want discussions here in public to
remain current, please contribute.

Telling people not to discuss the issue publicly is counter-productive
to an open project.

I'm extremely glad you sent this message. If you don't want FUD, provide
facts (as you have done in this instance). Please, those involved in
such private discussions, do this early and often.
