Some know, some don't. That makes an elit group who is in the secret for me.

Did I bash someone ? Did I say there was some conspiration from this
"elit" group I spoke about ? Did I say that they were happy of this
situation ?

Read again what I said. If _RedHat_ has to hide some informations (which
is totally understandable on a legal point of view for a private company),
then the whole Fedora community should be kept unaware _even the ones
working for RedHat_.

IMHO, that's the only way to preserve both:
- the secrecy needed by such an investigation
- the cohesion and transparency of the community

Once again, evasive informations are totally understandable when they come
from a private company facing such an issue, but they hurt when they come
from a suposedly open and transparent community you felt you were playing
an integral part.

Sorry for the rant, but if we should not rant and simply accept what's
coming from the top, then I fear we are even less open and transparent
that what the intrusion showed us.
