I'll almost ignore the implied insult. It's irrelevant and beside the
point. I am not being paid at all to do what I did before, which was
to do the impossible, of representing both corporate interests and
community desires and trying to reconcile and move ahead productively.

Rather, as my post ought to suggest, I am simply interested in helping
out those who are still posting requests to me, and certainly would be
quite interested in helping those who are doing work on the new site.

This is a new project, for all I can see, and its "management" (a term
more or less unused and undefined and unwanted in Apache-land,
afaict)—is really up to those who are doing things. I personally would
really rather like to see new things arise from this new effort and
new community esprit de corps evolve, not tired, bickering legacy
