As project partners none of this should come as a surprise. Matt Garrett 
openly discussed this problem for months. Red Hat used all of its media 
outlets to make this topic known and promote solutions that actually work.

If you now come back and say "Hey, I didn't know, I don't like. I leave" 
instead of helping to find a better solution, then so be it. But IMHO it 
is the wrong way.

As I said from the start - this is NOT a good solution. We ALL know 
that. And many people have discussed, asked, tried, failed, tried again 
to find better solutions. All in the open. Fully transparent. That 
should deserve some credit.
