Status update on this. We got some volunteers, but no one with actually
enough free time to start doing the declassification right now. In fact,
more than that, what is needed is someone to set up a sustainable work
flow to both declassify in batch all the back log and then to keep up
routinely with the new stuff that can be declassified.

All that anticipated, it would be pointless to keep on reiterating "call
for helps" on this in the future (e.g. at each DPL change :)). So, with
the help of the secretary, we've added the following notice to the vote
page [2]:

where "status page" is an anchor pointing to [1], that contains the
following text:

If anyone of you want to see this happen, you know what to do and/or you
can point other people to that page.
