So we can't even hear that it's occurring? I'm not asking for input
necessarily. I am asking for knowledge of what is happening. Just
knowing that there are problems with embargoed packages or knowing that
there are legal issues with non-employee contributions, this is valuable
information. This makes people realize what it is you're doing.

Just communicate. Look back through every message I've posted on this
subject. They're all the same point - Talk to us: where us == people
interested in helping with fedora development. If you don't want to talk
on a list, talk in a blog, if you don't want to talk in a blog, tell
Colin Charles and he can post it to the fedora weekly news. But tell us
things. If you've ever been a manager or have ever been managed you know
what a status report is.

Send them, every week, every two weeks, let the people who want to be
involved in this open source community/project know what's up, what
you're doing.

Why not hear about this before today? Is there any part of this that is
protected in some way?

telling people to wait a bit more can get frustrating. However, not as
frustrating as people asking 'what's up' and getting silence for months
on end.
