As a suporter of the proposal I am disappointed
that its not going in but I understand the reluctance and respect the decision.
Risk is always difficult to evaluate and the job of the PMC in the
end game is to temper the enthusiasm of those close to the action. I
personally don't envy that job and I know much wringing of hands goes into
every one of those decisions, including this one. Its a value call, theirs
to make, and I support them in that.
The decision has been made, and I would
respectively like to suggest that we now need to collectively take a big
breath, consider the ship sailed for 3.4, and ensure we carry forward this
positive energy for change into 3.5.
Some good questions have been raised
about how decisions are made, what the risks dynamics are, how we manage
them, and how we innovate in the face of risk. I'm not trying to
shut down those discussions.
