But also realize that this process has been going on for over a year now.
I have had multiple conversations at conferences at this point with people who expressed various opinions on the matter and I didn't report those face-to-face conversations either and which are no different than a private email. There was never going to be a chance where anyone but me was going to have complete knowledge of people's various positions, nor was I about to report a tally of those conversations based on preferences. I'm sorry if people feel like I did a disservice by not doing a regular "general sentiment of the Python community" report based on what private feedback I received, but I just didn't think about it nor did I think it would be an issue for anyone that people chose to speak with me privately.
Thank you for the explanation. It's a bit of a recurring problem here that once something has been discussed at a conference, the people who weren't there have a very hard time to catch up via the mailing lists.
So I don't think posting +-1 on python-committers is noise, in matters like this one it should happen more often.
Sorry for starting this subthread during your vacation (I missed that), I hope you can enjoy the remaining days!
