Evan,

Would you define this statement? "they're (developers) working against a
very real
clock."

Happily.  At some point, running Freenet will (likely) become illegal,
assuming current trends continue.  This includes in the West.  It may
already be in France.  It is safe to assume that developing Freenet
will have the same legal status, whatever that may be.

When that happens, the darknet needs to be sufficiently functional for
development to move off the public net and onto the darknet.  If the
darknet can't support a collaborative development effort by then, we
have a real problem.  It may or may not be enough to kill Freenet
entirely, but it would be a big enough setback to make data resets and
incompatible versions look rosy by comparison.

Evan
