  - what was the final push to do this change*right now*?

    change (not the ones*this*  behaviour or*that*  behaviour)?

that's easy.

I right now work basically full time for TDF, but I really have to work on my "real" life. Spending hours per day on TDF doesn't allow too much other real life, so a change here is needed. Urgently. I didn't have any free weekend for months. When I tried to involve others, especially developers, I (too) often heard the argument that they don't follow the lists because of their respective configuration. However, if you don't want to burn me, we *urgently* need to get more people involved, since my day only has 24 hours, and I also need to work on some some other things besides TDF.

It simply is a try if people now, that the change has been done, indeed would jump on the lists, or if this was a false argument. Discussion lead to nowhere, and even now, we receive very contrary feedback - some people hate the change, others are in full favor of it. So, indeed, discussing it over and over again doesn't change anything, and IMHO, the best way to give it a try is by doing it.

Call it selfish, but if you spend hours a day working on TDF matters, and you hear the argument that people would do much more if the lists were configured the right way - would you give it a try? Discussing does not help me in any way...
