I'm a long time member of the team, and could see for some time that the
situation was untenable in the long term, so it had to come to some sort
of turning point eventually. Nevertheless, when the time came and it all
fell apart, it was painful to watch, so I did what I felt I could to
help: say some kind words of thanks, and not overreact. My response was
phrased in such a way that affirmed Daniel's declaration of the end of
the project not to "fuel panic", but to acknowledge that the project as
he conceived it, "his" project, has ended. That is a fact. That doesn't
preclude it continuing, even under the same name, under different
leadership. However, if there is a likely successor within the project
who is a DD, I don't know who that would be. That being said, it may be
that I'm missing someone obvious just because I'm out of touch due to
declining participation over the past few years.
Personally, I'm just biding time until the furor dies down, and then
perhaps I'll re-involve later if I can see there's some role for me.
