I surely agree that, having to choose on where we should put energies,
fixing RC bugs is a way better investment of volunteer time (.. and I
hope this is enough to avoid being hit by your side rule :-)). But this
is not the point here: the point is rather that we had a vote on the
matter, we decided as a project that such archives shall be
declassified. Now it's time to keep up with what we promised.

Apparently ATM we don't have the energy to do that. That is just fine:
we are all volunteers and we cannot be forced to do specific stuff.
Still, we need to show our honesty, clarify our willingness to implement
our decision, and make clear the needed conditions for that GR to be
implemented. I believe that the wiki page and the pointer to it from the
vote page are enough of a message in that respect.

If anything, this episode might also help us realize that before voting
on a matter (or proposing to vote on a matter) we should think twice at
the possibility of keeping up with what the vote entails.
