Seems like the key issue is control of the domain name, which was taken
'private registration' a few months ago.  Without it, the project can't
keep their commitment to their users of n years worth of updates.  So,
trust and brand value are at risk.

I suspect their PayPal account can be written off at this point -
perhaps why the holder of the account is under the radar.  Not that
anybody should ever keep a balance in PayPal, that has its own set of
horror stories.

Still, all kinds of providers go through leadership changes and ousters
all the time - this one is being done open-source style.  That seems to
have some media people freaked out.

A bunch of people who have earned excellent reputations in the linux
community are signatories to the letter.
