First-time poster here.

I think not having discussed this in public risks setting a really bad 
precedent.  I had been taking a break from lurking on perl5-porters, so 
when the news was announced on, I assumed it had been being 
discussed on here and that I'd simply missed it, and was very surprised 
to find this announcement.  Can you please elaborate on "we needed to 
manage the communication around this"?

There was even a coincidental opportunity to discuss it openly back in 
mid-May, and at that point, your responses seemed to imply that this 
*wasn't* already being considered, despite your assertion that this has 
been in the works well before that time:


Could you please explain this in more detail?  Thank you.
