Hi Andi, first off, I'm very sorry these things seem to have taken a turn for the worse. I'm trying to move this part of the discussion now off the design list, and onto board-discuss, as it seems to primarily deal with interaction style, within & from the board. So Fup2 board-discuss please. Beyond some details below, where I'd love to get to is getting over personal gripes eventually (on all sides - happy to call you any time, to hear what you'd expect here!); perhaps with a way to keep you engaged with the community you've helped building, but at least with a way for the project to keep the Plone sites running properly for the while.

There were no real internal discussions with the board about issues.
Not to put too fine a point on it - but we discussed the issues around the queue of pending submissions e.g. in January & February this year, on the infra/hostmaster list. Also in 2016, a discussion not too different from the one here took place inside the board, when looking for options to go beyond the first version of the template & extension site.
But afterwards I was kicked out by this thread. I'm not used to be pilloried for my work during my spare time. And maybe others too.
Please don't take this as pillorying you. If it came across like that - apologies. In fact, without the original Plone sites, LibreOffice wouldn't have had a templates & extension repo for a long time, and no one disputes the relevance of that. What we're trying to do here, is to move beyond the sole-developer / sole-admin situation that is manifest since quite a few years (and I can well believe how much of a personal burden that must have been). I therefore hope we can all agree that the current setup is not very sustainable, and work constructively from there. All the very best, -- Thorsten
