Manu, that's an exceptionally thorough write-up.

I've captured the issues you noted (or at least a pointer to them) here:


While I may not necessarily agree with all the issues/points you raise, I
want to thank you for your frank feedback, and I'm hoping that open
documentation and resolution of such issues itself addresses at least some
of your issues (if not most or all).

The biggest feedback I have is that there are several assertions (such as
about being "scope-less" etc.) that I think are faulty due to no fault or at
least intent of yours, but rather due to implicit assumptions, and that
rather than stating such assertions as fact, it may be better to state them
as questions to be explored.

Regarding the community-related issues specifically, expect some
particularly swift movement on that front in the next few weeks.
