Well, I can't argue that a couple of hours isn't significantly shorter
than 30 days. I do think it's still somewhat unclear why this second
"open-source vendor" gets the courtesy of coordination and cooperation,
but the apache group got effectively blindsided.

If anything, your second "clarification" seems to contradict your first
"response" that the apache project couldn't be trusted with
coordination, "due to the general nature of open-source."

This seems more like 'obfuscation' and 'covering' than 'clarification'.
