I don’t really get this.  So here you have people upset with a direction the project is taking….which IS “on topic.” The direction of the project is determined by the existence of a particular problem…which is also apparently “on topic.”  And yet it is “off topic” to ask the very fundamental question: "What is the exact nature and scope of the problem?” How is that rational?

How do you know how to address the problem if you don’t know what exactly what it is?

Or is your opinion that the problem is addressed to your satisfaction and you just want people to quit griping and accept what has been decided..and your approach is just to dismiss the discussion with “off topic”?
