I mean any and all information that you'd be comfortable sharing.

Oh, you are maintaining a separate mailinglist server. That comes as a
surprise to me. Both that it exists (I believe I've looked at the web
pages several times for exactly that kind of info, but I might obviously
have simply missed it), and why you feel the need for maintaining
Where are those lists? Are their archives public accessible somewhere?
...but to answer your question: No, as mentioned above I did not even
expect you to run own mailinglist server so didn't consider asking about
that. I was more specifically wondering on translation tracking - e.g.
use of Rosetta, Pootle, Yahoo Babelfish, Google Translate, [DDTP] etc.
But let me emphasize again, that I am interested in any and all that you
feel comfortable sharing openly with us.
You address us as friends and I certainly, dearly(!) want our
relationship to be friendly. I do notice, however, that decisions are
made at your camp (which is great) apparently without discussing openly
first (which is fine too, but I would prefer if at least the decision
_process_ was open) and apparently counting on us playing along (which
is _also_ fine - but your apparent lack of transparency concerns me).
Please do not take this as fingerpointing or wanting to accuse you of
structuring things in a bas way. I simply feel unable to gather
knowledge to even form an opinion on whether you are running a sensible
organisation or not, and fear that others might feel similarly (or
worse, might be less tolerant and loose faith in you sooner).
Kind regards, and with best intentions,
