It's an opinion and that's all. I knew what to expect when I decided
to make my feelings known about these issues here - I expected a
backlash from some developers. After all, who wants to admit they're
doing something wrong.  I've followed IRC and this group for some time
and know I am not alone.

Yes, all true. However, I am not saying she's not busy or doesn't work
hard (see my previous responses). I think an architect should look
quickly to resolve questions like: -


This thread wasn't by itself. You will find corresponding messages in
IRC and here. All of which appear to have been selectively ignored.

Why would I want privileges if as you say (1).

Sadly, for me, it was too little too late from Allison. Waiting 4
months for a response doesn't work for me at all. Back in April I had
a lot more time for this but after waiting a month one has to start
concentrating their energies elsewhere; that's exactly what I've done.
