Unfortunately, a few minutes after posting the above statement, Stefan  
sent an email to u-m saying he's no longer sure if he wants to be  
involved with Ubuntu Development. I'm not sure if these things are  
connected, but given the timestamps it's certainly possible.

When you're at the top of the pyramid, it's easy to view discussions  
and information as "procedural pedantry". When you're at the _bottom_  
of the pyramid, working your behind off for the common good of the  
project, it is equally easy to become demotivated if you start feeling  
you're taken for granted and that relevant information doesn't come  
your way.

It's in everybodys good interest to maintain a high level of  
information and discussion, and since everybody has stated that they  
have no problem with the actual outcome of the decision, that should  
pose no problem. What is relevant is that everybodys desire to be "in  
the loop" is satisfied.
