I'm sorry to say that the recent discussions have been happening over
private email between me and the IceCat maintainers.  That's actually a
slight improvement from a few weeks ago when there was only one IceCat
maintainer who worked in isolation.  Lack of public communication has
been a longstanding issue with the IceCat project.

You make an excellent point.  I will do what I can to improve the
situation, starting with my post a few hours ago to bug-gnuzilla.  I
hope that it provides enough information for potential contributors to
get started and to propose incremental improvements.

     Thank you!
