Quite a bit longer than that iirc.

...and theoretically desdev. However, because of the highly contentious
nature of the move to Drupal, it was no more than practical to ensure  
theforum fully supported what the people working on it were doing.

Therefore, anything needing discussion above the truly low-level and
tactical got brought to theforum to make sure the doers didn't get a
shoeing for it afterwards.

It was a very much less than efficient way of doing things, but sadly
necessary to deal with stakeholders who were fighting the entire
principle at every step of the way.
