I knew that would get a response :)
It can't happen then can it ?
I saw Ryan's goal as being to assist in support and I'm sure that is a
shared view here but as he stated in his initial email without a common

Maybe the topic should stop ? Or is there a decent way forward ? The
credit and site traffic for plugins matters not right now, the process
does but without a process it can't happen...
