It sounds like their overall team is much larger than ours based on the
tone of that email (is that true?). We have also talked about having both
Discourse and python-committers for announcements which would partially
alleviate some of their concerns.

I also think it's telling that their decision to do this was done on IRC
which is not a primary communication platform for all of us and suggests
that it's possible the desires/needs/expectations of those participating
are different.
