Stephen,

Not all developers agreed in the "recasting" let alone the users.  Despite
our expressing this concern you have not sought understanding or compromise.
This is not simply with respect to the site changes alone, but the entire
manner under which the "unified Avalon" campaign has proceeded.  You are
hell bent on fashioning Avalon after the manner you see fit regardless of
the concerns of your peers.

Avalon cannot change its identity in the manner in which you have suggested
or proceeded.  It is indeed a blocker.  The options available have been
iterated before: address the issues the Board has with the Metro TLP,
undergo incubation, or investigate a non-ASF hosting solution for Merlin.
