Case in point - Michael's work on Drupal would have provided integrated

The work on the Drupal development has halted as per the Steering
Committee statement.
There seems to be a disconnect between what the community/mailing list
groups want and what the Steering Committee is willing to support.

From my discussions with the individuals involved with the Drupal
development there seems to be a consensus that until the Steering
Committee allows the individual community groups some autonomy to make
their own decisions and avoids overruling the groups it is unlikely
that the development will continue. The vast majority of the website
team has been supporting and contributing to this development as it is
seen as the 'way forward' but the SC and some founding members have
made it clear that this development will not continue.

Personally I would like to see 'website team lead(s)' elected within
the website team, by the website team and decisions made at a
community level upheld without the SC stepping in.
If you or others wish to see this development continue, I would
suggest that you rally one or more of the SC members to overturn the
decisions made at the most recent meeting and allow autonomy within
the functional teams.
