This is of course very, very nice and my congratulations to Peter.
However, you must excuse me for not sharing your enthusiasm, at least not to 
the extend you seem to be feeling it.

Could you please explain in what way the addition of a single person to the 
existing team (Phil already was DSA, even if not yet in the adm group) is 
going to resolve all the huge and structural communication problems between 
team members that we have heard about?

Are there any other changes that have been agreed to by existing members to 
address those issues, or will we now just have a larger team with 
structural communication problems?

Your announcement is nice, and I'm sure it took a lot of hard work to get 
this far, but I have serious doubts that it is enough. Some elaboration on 
the way forward, including a word on that other team that is always the 
subject of controversy and complaints, would be very much appreciated.
