Actually I have wondered a great deal about this myself. Why did Freenet
break in the first place and - assuming that it happened through an error
introduced by an update about a year ago - why wasn't the stable version
reverted to the last working version, so we could have avoided paralyzing
the entire net for a year? Even if the fix is allmost ready for the big
launch, the other issues would be interesting to know about, just for
historical reasons.
