My objection is that the community didn't get a chance to discuss the 
changes at all, whether on perl5-porters or nay.  The changes were 
announced after being decided by an apparently closed group---and were 
already considered sufficiently finalised that a book has been released 
by one of the group about preparing for the changes, announced in the 
very same post.  It looks very much like a fait accompli.


Per my original question, would you please go into more detail on why 
perl5-porters was intentionally insulated from this decision?

Could you also clarify why you felt it necessary to mislead the list 
about the existence of these plans in the post I linked?

Well, now that the changes the group intends to make are public, would 
you tell *us* who was involved, and how they were selected?

Maybe we can bring back the light.
