This posting brought us a lot of attention ("bad news are good news")
and as a result some new developers and supporters.

There are two articles on german technical and Free Software news
portals and regarding to the comments they also got a lot of attention.

There was a "tug" in the community and people saw their special
responsibility for the project.

Unfortunately Kay resigned. But fortunately even this great loss did not
induce others to react in the same way.

So let us use the drive to demonstrate that we are still able to create
a good and usefull product. As others said: Think about present and
future - and leave the past to trolls and historians!

Kind regards
Michael
