that's #1 in my [gnome] to-do list, believe me.  i'm sure there will
be progress real soon, and i'll post here whatever i have (as soon as
i have it), so we can all work on the personas project.

sounds great; i was asking you because i really can't think of ways to
improve that, at least ways within my reach.

yes, you got my point perfectly (as a matter of fact you're the first
to do that; i guess i wasn't clear): it was not about my signature or
me or moral authority or whatever, but about having an official (or at
least semi-official) response.

well i guess you have your reasons to say this, so i'll respect that. 
but imho, once the consensus is reached and some official position is
written, you can post it in whatever site you have, no matter its

of course you have reasons i surely don't know, so i could be just wrong.

i'm sure a lot my annoying emails were related to the many things i
ignore, but it wasn't just that.

there are also attitude and commitment issues i already commented, not
to mention the fact that i was sleepless and frustrated and maybe
acting stupid  :P

sounds interesting; details wouldn't hurt  ;)

i'm sure they're being debated in some other places that are beyond my
reach.  what concerns me is that we barely see anything being debated
here in the marketing list, and that i don't see what's being done
(not just debated) in those other places.

maybe it's my fault for not subscribing to every single list, or maybe
there should also be a better communication framework between the
different teams.
