It never occurred to me that whatever was being discussed was not
basic.  I probably didn't fully understand it anyway :)

Good point.  I'm offering to relinquish any presumption among other
people that I need to be consulted on changes.  If people want to make
drastic changes to the project, so be it.  Even if I objected, I
wouldn't pretend that my objection would count for anything :)

It's good that you two are administrators; it means the project is in
good hands.
