+1 to everything Scott has said.

As a contributor i also know of some 'MOTU changes' that are coming
along, but have no information and it would be great to have more
insight. It feels like there have been a few issues of late which
could of been avoided with more open transparent communication.

I understand the the various councils and sabdfl can do as they see
fit (and I really believe we are working to the same common goals),
but as contributors I believe we can contribute, but are unable to do
so if we don't know whats happening. Maybe it seems like the community
(I) are whining over little issues (I have no issue with the extension
of the 3 months) , but its the principle of openness and transparency
i believe Ubuntu is founded on.

I put effort into Ubuntu which i care about, and i'd appreciate
knowing I have some say and direction in something i really care
about, failing this I think we risk alienating and making people
question where they put their free time.
