Let me first clarify that I absolutely do not mind doing the work. That
has nothing to do with it. Making a release would be much less work than
it was to find the problem and fix it. I was not waiting for Ben to do
the work, and I had absolutely no idea it sounded that way.

There are two reasons why I did not "take the lead and produce a
release", the first being that I have only one vote. I thought my email
would make people start voting, but it didn't work. The second reason is
much harder to describe. I really honestly did not think I had the
mandate to initiate a release without the consent from the long time
developers. From where I come it's common to get wide acceptance in the
group before proceeding, so when I heard nothing from people I expected
to have an opinon I did not know what to do.

I'm learning, though. At least I try to... and I appreciate your
response. I can't learn from silence.
