I already answered you off list since you replied to me off list but
here we go again. It is not required that you respond here but since the
announcement was made here and someone else said that there wouldnt be
anyone from the board willing to see and respond to the comments, I
offered to summarize the discussions to the board from this particular
thread or provide a link to the thread for them. Many of the board
members are also subscribed to this list and can read and respond if
require. In the longer term, we will have a separate board list with
open archives, meetings mins etc to keep everyone informed on the
discussions and decisions being made.

Yes. Weekly meetings for the various sub projects are always posted on
the wiki


There is also fedoranews.org weekly reports and Red Hat magazine
includes the same as fedora status reports for you all to be able to
follow the updates as required.

I never said that.

Thats one way to read about information in detail but as I have pointed
out earlier there are other means too.

All of the comments that you want to make can be made on the fedora-
devel list.

On every occasion that I take my own time to respond to people here on
the list, I get comments like this.  If you feel that I am just an
apologist, then we arent having a level headed discussion at all.

2:28 AM on a friday night and I am spending my own time answering you.
That should tell you something about my interest in listening to you

We differ on that opinion. If you have any solutions to offer, I am
