Hi all,

I read this list There have been a couple of things that I find disturbing 
during the last months. I am on this list since 2005, and so far, I had the 
feeling to know who was 
what. Antoine and Pascal are the ENAC guys. The project is hosted at the ENAC 
so it was clear somehow who was driving the project (Of course there are many 
other long term 
contributors). The things changed since THE blog appeared, which doesn't have 
an ENAC address. Further on this blog, the posts are signed from a mysterious 
(to me at least) 
paparazzi team.
        . It is not clear to me who really is behind the Blog: I would suspect 
Joby Robotics to disguize itself as paparazzi team as the choice of the topics 
somewhat falls on 
hadware they sell. The "About" page says "the paparazzi community" is behind. I 
know one for sure I wasn't involved.
        . On the other side I believe Antoine has been working on the lisa 
Board and IMUs for some years now.
        . In my Fantasy, Antoine moved from the ENAC to JR... (Which is ok, but 
I just don't know)

According to the recent Aspirin thread, I am not alone to be confused. May be 
it is worth to sort it out. My suggestion would be:
        . Explain somewhere on the Blog what the exact relationship it 
maintains to the Paparazzi project. Who is the editor, and who are the 
contributors. Please sign the posts 
with you usual nicknames and add your company name if this applies.
        . For JR and the other commercial supliers, list the contributors 
nicknames belonging to the company so that we can sort out who is telling what 
(may be on the supplier page 
of the wiki?). Add the company name in your signature when posting to the 
mailing list.

Just adding my 2 cent opinion here.

PS: Also the copyright on the blog is very strange (I cannot map that name to 
anything related to paparazzi...) and not actual.
