Conducting this process behind closed doors seems to have backfired, as evidenced by the technical problems that happened anyway and the controversy and drama that we're all now embroiled in. Regardless of intentions, these results should be a clear sign that the process didn't work and needs to be re-examined. And it's very disappointing to hear that a part of the reason for this process was specifically to exclude a particular person. It's no great secret that Paul and Jonathan don't have a great working relationship, but this problem needs to be addressed openly. The two of you trying to work around one another, occasionally writing passive aggressive emails on the mailing list is not how the problem will get solved; instead it will just get bigger over time.

Thank you all for your comments. I am sure now it is a lesson learned
and we will be more vigilant of these situations in the future. It is
part of the challenge of working with a large community across many

We all make assumptions that we feel are right but when placed in a
larger context they don’t always work the way it was intended.

I feel the community has spoken and we are in agreement. Let’s learn
from it and now move forward with the amazing work we deliver to many
people in the world.
