Yes. And I'm working on the moonmoon codebase to get a quick hold of
it when it needs to be adapted, in case of.

Trish has the credentials (I don't, and I'm trying to get these too to
unlock the issue further).

 - there was a response; albeit certainly not the one expected;
 - little direction, yes; *
 - ambiguous C&C, yes;

* globally, there little, if any, direction, regarding our Web
resources at large; I'm responsible for that. Historically, I happen
to manage www and most of its content; I welcome contributions, but
indeed, I'd vet them, as a maintainer; Web team is sleeping, if still
alive; that's an issue to me too, because although I have pending
work, so far, it's still a one-man work (such as a coming redesign for
the home page I started to draft) and it needs more directed
discussion, and progress with actual code and production, to go
forward. In short, it sucks for the time being.

It's more that they could have had sooner access to it, yes, and that
we need to know how to handle credential delegations (the moonmoon
platform doesn't go for multiple user accounts for now). I'd perfectly
go with the "better apologize than ask for permission" in that area,
but that's something that must be acknowledged by everyone, and
comparimentized, so that some aspects of the official releases (be it
Mageia, or Web services) are not affected.
