Admin archive is public, right? Could you provide me with a link? There
doesn't seem to be a general overview-by-date. I'd like to take a look at
these mails, too.

Which is why I thought I'd do it. I have no evolt-running experience
whatsoever, no personal feelings either (except that evolt really should
survive) so I can take a detached look at the facts. Besides, I'm an
historian by nature and profession.

I summarized the primary sources (the discussion), now on to a first
analysis (mainly ordering the facts), then on to the real work (interpreting
the facts).

Dunno where this will end but it'll probably be useful to someone. I don't
promise anything of a deadline either.

OK, added a note.

I see... Now I have to re-read the mail for some context.

>and i agree that i am the moderator, and too opinionated....

You said so yourself <g>.

Me too. It's my guiding principle in my professional life. If you're
irreplaceable it means people will even phone you when you're on holiday. I
don't like that at all, so I have to create a structure that allows people
to carry on without me.
