Jonni, thank you for the clarification.  As you suggested, it should
clear up rumours and and at least provide some reassurance that events
would at least be communicated.  I appreciate your summary.

As I said before, projects come and go, code breaks etc.  I've never
had a problem with any of this, it was purely that lack of
communication that really was bad.
