Hi Wes, For future reference, one suggestion that I would make is that decision-makers should be available to answer questions at the time that an announcement is made. Otherwise their absence can put many people in difficult positions (both staff and community) with limited information and needing to wait potentially long periods of time before getting definitive answers, which can be both frustrating and costly.
I think it was good to put this announcement on the Discovery list; sharing it more broadly would have made sense given the impact to others' workflows. I realize that we have so many communications channels that it's not always clear what scope should be assigned to various communications, and would encourage thinking about that in the context of improving WMF communication in general.
