BTW I have consistently maintained that mail lists are not

Can we say that the SC did not receive enough inputs to correct
these mistakes? We have gone through months of 18 hours per day
work schedule and we have probably been less responsive than we
should have been. But it should be clear that we are volunteers
with a professional and a personal life, and we are far from being

It is the other way around: SC has not communicated its vision
properly/enough. Worse, SC has also not responded to the ongoing
chatter in mail lists to set things right periodically.

Which is not true.

While SC was COMPLETELY absent from the battlefront, the volunteers
rallied at the mail list, and charted the course.

Which is not true

Volunteers are not androids who will stay in cupboards till needed.
They too love the excitement of creating something that was never
done before. Why rap their knuckles for it?

And where does the wisdom lie- In insulting/sacking such volunteers
or in letting them do it?

We are all volunteers here. I've been on this list every day since its begining saying anytime what was our vision and our needs. You even wrote me privately and I answered you. Whether you read my mails or not, whether you understand it or not is your issue, not ours.

Please, make a search on *all* mailing list of this project with my name and you will see that I'm here any time something needs to be explained or clarified or somebody needs help.

Do I have to claim any time that I'm in the SC or that I'm a founding member no, because coming to this project, you know who we are, and how it is organized. When you enter to a home, you know who lives there, this is the same, exactly here.

So now - we have work to do - just now on the EN site - are you there to help or not?

Kind regards
