Fedora Legacy shutting down

I'm wondering if anybody is working on a communications piece for the  
shutdown.  A who-what-when-where-why-how sort of article?  I'm  
assuming it would be on the Wiki/homepage if it were, but here's  
asking anyhow.

So, assuming it hasn't been, I can volunteer to put something  
together, to save the multitudes the effort of investigation.  I  
spent some time looking over the last couple months of mailing list  
archives, the internetnews piece, and Jesse's blog, but I'm not  
convinced I have the whole story.  Some outstanding questions would be:

   * was there any attempt to recruit new leadership?
   * ditto for sponsorship
   * is there data on usage (I saw that 'interest was low' but I'm  
not sure if it means interest in volunteering or interest in terms of  
yum updates)
   * probably lots more I'm not thinking about now, and it's late so  
my reading comprehension is likely sub-par

So, everybody feel free to send me any interesting factoids that  
would be relevant for someone wading into this today for the first  
time, and perhaps facing a mini support crisis right about now.  I'll  
assemble and post back here with something for feedback.  I bet lots  
of folks will want some information come Tuesday.

And if somebody is already doing this, great, no intention to step on
