I'm not sure I could design a process more guaranteed to result in complete resistance from the community if I tried. It's gobsmacking that far more effort was made on putting together a nice little junket to Tunisia than any sort of effort to seek community-buy-in. The working groups had next-to-no direct interaction with any of the community's objections to the proposals. But again, a trip to Tunis is a lot more fun than remedying risk assessments with howlers like (I'm paraphrasing) "some people might not like it" or "people can just leave the project."
