I am not saying that there isnt an issue. but I dont agree with you that 
the problem is delayed updates. The delayed updates is a consequence of 
the issues that we are working with. Both Tru and I have had personal 
issues that have kept us away from the machines for a bit. I dont really 
have a machine that I can use reliably as this time either, but I'm 
working on that.

If you are now expecting that a bunch of people automagically get 
signing rights - thats not going to happen. The trust factor will need 
to get built up.

Sure, there are plenty of issues that need resolution - but that 
resolution needs to be along the lines that are inclined towards real 
problem solving. If you wont see the real issue under the hood, you are 
not only missing the point, but also wasting everyone's time.
