The communications I've made thus far about the intrusion are the sum
total of what we've been able to report with certainty and as fact.
This is a rather complex situation made worse because the intrusion
affected both Fedora and our sponsor, Red Hat.  As I've indicated in
my most recent statement about the intrusion, it is my intention to
produce a detailed report as soon as we can.  I continue to be in
contact with the security and executive teams within Red Hat about
this matter on a regular basis.

I'm sorry these communications can't fall more in line with your
expectations, but rest assured the matter has not been, and will not
be, forgotten.  Mike McGrath and I plan to sit down at FUDCon to talk
about our response and communications plan for future incidents.  If,
heaven forbid, we ever suffer another intrusion, we want the community
to know in advance what to expect in the way of announcements.
