Uh, that's what I did.

I brought it up with the community, then with the PMC.  We came to a
consensus (without needing a vote) and I forwarded the recommendation to the
Board in my last report.  The Board's not going to make any official action
until the time comes to actually close the project which we didn't want
happen occur immediately.  So in the mean time we are proceeding as planned
in the closure process.

I understand that you and perhaps other users might be concerned about
what's going to happen and so I'm trying to keep everyone informed.  If
anyone has questions, please bring them up.  

I do mind, however, constant badgering about policies and procedures even
after answers have been provided.  I take offense in the insinuations that
I, or anyone else here, has been a puppet or that there is some conspiracy
to hurt the Avalon community.  At the same time, despite differences some
have had with Stephen, there's no reason for anyone to start throwing around
insults at him.  I believe he wanted assured that I wasn't acting on my own
(and I am not) and that query, in and of itself, is a perfectly valid one.

So, thanks for trying to keep us honest, Stephen.  I hope I've allayed your
fears.
