It really does sound like you want the process closed up, but to also be able to pat yourself on the back for being an upstanding open source guy. You're hoping to get all the benefits of open and closed, with none of the problems that come with either. The world just doesn't work that way. Personally, I'd like to get paid for working without actually having to do anything. But, that too is just not how the system I'm participating in works. But, we both knew the costs of getting involved, and chose to be a part of it. Complaining afterward is just silly.

i could care less about beign patted on the back.

this is closer, however. i would like to be able to work in the open without members of our community taking those discussions prematurely to announcement.

it simply makes it harder to do our job. had this been someone from zdnet or whatever, i would have shrugged it off as typical. that it comes from people within the community itself is what, imho, made this unnecessary and therefore dissapointing.
