I would echo this. It's amazing to me how quickly folks seem to forget how
much (thankless) work Paul has put into this project.

There has been a lot of back and forth on the original thread between Paul
& others, and the fact that there is not currently consensus does not mean
that we're in need of either a fork or a new coordinator.

The disagreements are part of the dialogue. I get that some folks feel
frustrated that this has been an ongoing thing for them for months. Well,
now it's in the spotlight.

I also agree with what others have said in the meantime -- a revert to
2021a & everyone takes a week to cool off.
