Under ordinary circumstance I'd be 100% with you and screaming from the rooftops about discussion of the coming HF. In this case, this particular case I'm only half with you. This HF is entirely directed at fixing errors that resulted from the HF that created Hive.
The consensus witnesses and the devs are really concerned to do this right so that it doesn't have to be repeated at the next fork. I get that.
The part that I am with you on is communication. Do you know that only 4 consensus witnesses have issued a monthly (required) witness report since the split? Really?
I bitch to everybody I can think of. To no avail. As long as the voting is as it is there is no reason for them to say a peep to anyone.
I would expect the discussion about the next HF to start early and go on. That one will undoubtedly have changes that DO affect everyday users such as voting and rewards.
I don't understand why it's so hard. I've even offered to do reports for two witnesses. Urrrrgggghhhh.
I think I'll quit here. I'll save my vitriol and angst for the next fork.
