Thanks for providing those details. I meant, and wrote it poorly I'm
sure, that I presume that the situation was much as you described, but
in the end there were people who did not feel/get communicated to. At
that point, Infra and others were saying, "OK, sorry if you didn't
hear about this before, it's been a long-standing problem, and we need
to solve it now before the barn burns down."

So, sorry for characterizing the communication as poor. I think what
I'm seeing could benefit from some change management that all know
about. A lot of times we have to result to a change management list
that goes something like, "OK, ask
$this_list_of_individuals_I_can_think_of, then email
$this_list_of_mailing_lists_I_can_think_of, and write a blog post."

Anyway, I'm sure there is a not-too-much-bureacracy way to do this. I
started this ...


... I'm sure there are others who deal with that all the time around
here, maybe there are some existing processes we can adopt,
incorporate, hug, etc.
