It's not about trust; it's about open source as a two-way street. If
you're going to pour your time into making the public half of IronRuby
better, perhaps you deserve to know about or have some say in the
direction of the other half as well. I don't have any distrust of John's
team or intentions; I just would love to see them able to have public
rather than private discussions, and I think both the IronRuby and other
Ruby communities would benefit from it.
