Again, I think this is a snipe hunt.  "Neutrality" and "objectivity" do not exist.

I think we will not have difficulty coming to consensus on wording that describes what the monorepo and multirepo look like.  That can be very dry.

Then when it comes to *comparing* them, I think we do not want to be neutral.  We want one side to explain why they think the monorepo is better, and the other side to explain why they think the multirepo is better, and then leave it to people to read those arguments and make up their own minds.

What I do not think we want to do is attempt to lay out "neutral facts" in an "objective manner" and think that is how we "let people make up their own minds."  Indeed, we want people to make an "informed choice", and specifically what we want them to be informed of is not just the dry facts of "monorepo looks like this, multirepo looks like that", but also experts' interpretations of those facts.
