I disagree that the recent actions have fostered positive growth in the 
1) They fired the previous PMC - who was by far the most invested and 
dedicated person to the project.  I don't care if he missed some reports 
or had a few flippant comments - I think it was pretty stupid (I mean 
he's part of the C++ standard committee)
2) Posting the project is dead on a public list certainly doesn't help
