I'm sorry, I just don't have the time to do it justice right now,
although I'll pass this e-mail on to the trustees in case anybody wants
to step up.  I'm happy to answer any questions, but somebody else will
have to write the actual press release.

It's a good idea, although my suspicion is that by the time the GWN
comes out things will have diffused appropriately.  We've had a nice bit
of press about the issue from nearly-reputable sources, and some of the
facts have even been correct!

*Grin*  You're quite welcome, although I also think you're a bit
cynical.  Over the last however-many years I've seen quite a number of
good apologies on -dev and -core!
