I was out of town too. About + 10 weeks. The TC was voted for in August.

I guess you will need to write Casper. He is in IRC 24/7 and monitoring everything.

There was no coup and no one is hiding anything from anyone. This was not done
in private or in any disrespectful way. Like I posted, I never get to vote for
things that change the structure of the Ros tree. Did I get any respect in a
opportunity to vote on it? No I did not. I should be upset but I'm not. The
changes made are good for Ros.

I really hope you understand what you are asking for. If we stick to this rigidness
in voting. We will never get anything done.
