I agree that listening and receiving communication is important to the 
process. I'm not wondering why you have no memory of hearing 
specifically from the Communications Committee - as I indicated, it 
hasn't exactly "signed" everything it has input on. I am wondering why 
you spoke as if you'd never seen any kind of communication from the 
Wikimedia Foundation at all. Considering that Anthere, Brad, Jimbo, and 
Erik have all been actively involved in raising and discussing issues on 
this list, I don't know whether you've missed that entirely, or you're 
looking for Wikimedia's communications to take some other form we 
haven't dreamed up yet.
