Hi Anand,

thanks for your perspective. The current messages on the list are kind
of the response I hoped for, so I don't think it is a lost cause, yet. I
would like to comment on some of your points, mostly because I feel in a
similar way. Some of the topics I left out in my last message to not
dive too much into details.

While it is not a major issue for me, I second the notion.

Yes! I really welcome the fact that the source is on Github now, but in
my opinion that is only the beginning. There are certainly issues and
there are almost certainly feature requests from users. Please open up
here and give the community a chance to participate in discussions.

Thats right. I submitted one of the two issues, fixed in the current
release. After sending that in, I had no idea what was happening. Not
even an automated message from an internal issue system or the like.

That being said, I think the team around yadifa has already realized the
problem and I am confident that they will do their best.
