Occasionally we still find problems associated with that transition. Such is life with software. Anybody who tried Trinity during that transition unlikely will be convinced the software is now stable and responsive. We live with that.
> 2. Regarding the statement about "international team of developers." Do we claim that anywhere in the software? What about the web site or wiki? Although the claim is true, such statements portray a large number of people and we should not convey such claims. We barely survive with the few people we have.

Well our developer base is international ;)

> 3. How many people use Trinity? I haven't a clue and I doubt anybody does. Is the user base tens of thousands of users? Thousands? Hundreds? Dozens? One dozen? My point is we are a small project. We should not get involved in the whirlwinds of debate. Just quietly mind our own business. People will always think what they want. The only way people will pay attention to us in a positive light is to release quality products. To that end we focus. is out. Onward with R14. :)

Though I would like to know this... how many users do we see pulling
from our repositories?
