Dear Readers of the GRASS community,

due to mail server problems (as I understand it),
Rich's mail was delivered late here and arrived on the
development list almost a day earlier.

Because of this, responses and further discussions
already were posted to the development list.
You can access the thread in the mailarchive (search for the subject)
if you are interested.
(The development list of course is open for everybody interested.)

We (the developers) are grateful for all your opinions and feedback
on grass and how you feel about the development process.

The developers of GRASS5 under the lead of Markus Neteler 
are are addressing stability of Grass as primary goal of their efforts. 

If you have a different impression, please tell us.
We are happy to explain how we work and improve.

	Speaking as one of the GRASS5 developers.
