We need to have some transparency all along the way, especially in this
Not only it is a problem for the new members of the community, who find
a OS where it is better not to update at the moment (It has been one
week I believe), but also for old ones because one can't find the reason
What is happening right is most of this new members, along with some of
the old ones, are making suppositions.
And this, again it is only my opinion, makes us look like the community
can't deal with its own problems, and needs to close the gates and let
the pros do the job.
Anyway I hope we would soon have some feedbacks.
