Maybe not too far off. :-) The entire issue with the links devolves to
the continued silence by LL to any requests; even those by all

By the looks of the length of the thread referenced I would say that
Josh's previous "missive" was not ignored by any stretch of the
imagination. Rather it looks like Josh failed to follow up with
clarification to his "missive." This is the very issue of "continued

LL to reengage with the community. The investment of "a busy person's
time" to achieve the re-engagement of LL in the community would be
anything but a "waste." To the contrary, it would probably rank among
the greater contributions to the Koha project. (No one denies the
large contribution LL has made to Koha nor despises it. The complaint
is with how they have handled themselves in the light of other
It is my humble opinion that your organization could very possibly be
in the best position to make such a valuable contribution to this
