I have little time to react in detail right now but I do not want to
leave your widely circulated message unanswered for a long time.
Hence a very quick reaction.

I vehemently disagree with you here! A whole document was written
explaining the background situation: ripe-149. This document has no
other purpose than to explain this background and explain the reasoning
behind the unusually quick way in which the project proposal was
prepared. It mentions all relavant parts of the background.
If you do not agree I suggest you point out omissions quickly to
this audience because time is short. I also wonder why you have not
spoken up earlier to fill in any gaps. The documents were published
four weeks ago.

I obviously disagree with this statement too. Since you imply that we
mislead people, please explain exactly in which particular way we
are doing that.

I agree with you now that a statement like this would have been a good
idea. I simply did not think of it. As an explanation for this I can
only offer that the statements were based on comments we had received
prior to making the questionnaire. Your comment is the first we receive
in this direction.
