At the risk of sounding rude...

What is the justification for having darcs related discussions off-list?
It's an open source project with a public mailing list so I'm curious what
motivates a private non-publicly archived discussion?  Especially one that
would appear to prioritize future development?

I realize that I'm the first one to reply to this thread publicly after a
few days so it could just be a lack of interest on our user mailing list?

I would like to caution that having private discussions about GSoC projects
could lead to less overall consensus, a deterioration of transparency for
the project, and loss of the concerns that go into the decision making
process.  I unsubscribbed from the list because I think it's the wrong way
to discuss the GSoC proposals.
