Not hearing things on en:wikipedia is akin to not hearing it on 
nl:wikipedia. En:wikipedia may be the biggest wikipedia, it is not the 
platform for discussions regarding Mediawiki. It is Meta's purpose to 
discuss these things. The suggestion that something "clandestine" 
occured does speak of little respect for the integrity of people like 
Jimbo, Angela, Anthere ..
