Would it be possible to illistrate this with a few examples?

So why is everything that the DPL is involved in so secretive
that they cannot disclose it to the project?

It seems that we have a DPL election period where all the candidates
try to be very open about where they want to take the project, followed
by a DPL term where everything happens in private. Why can the DPL only
effectively lead in private? Isn't there a big disconnect there? Anyone
else not like this at all?

They would if it were clear that the DPL had led the project to this
happening, in public[1], surely?
