This is a double question, you can say that I have never done
anything, or ask why you or anyone else did anything to post new
content. Manage an account and manage the project content are two
different things. Some of these content was automated, like publishing
new templates and plugins, but since the Apache re-infrastructure and
the drop of services, these content automation was lost. Hence my
point on looking for tools to replace that functionality. Creating new
accounts is NOT solving the problem but adding confusion to the user.
You are free to propose new tools that can replace the previous one.
