I apologise if I did something inappropriate, but I want to assure you
that I always tried to make it clear that this were just my questions
and that I asked them withing the gentoo context so I could get a more
precise information for me to know how things would work (and then,
because I liked it, I decided to share it a the whole, even when it
overlapped with already available information).
So please do accept my apologies as I made contact with them just so I
could get a clear picture on the role they could play within gentoo's
context and then just because it made sense to me, I made the proposal
to rethink about them adding new information, but nothing more than
this. And gathered the information I needed I will not inquire any more
on the subject unless the foundation will want me obtain more

Yes, I completely agree with this point, I also sow it as a bit of a
drawback, but I also understand the reasons that made them require one
personal contact from each project.
