Interesting conversation here. Personally I am less skeptical of the lack of communication. I know that in my own work there is a constant demand for updates, but sometimes there isn’t a whole lot to say, the work just takes time and effort.
That said, maybe there’s a potential roll for someone here to assemble a visualization of what progress is being made and act as a go between for the devs and the public. Do we have an archive of past community calls?
However, the last thing I want is another project that hypes itself every few days with meaningless announcements of announcements of “partnerships”. I’m more inclined to respect a team that under sells and over delivers.
The best case scenario is to find someone who excels at gathering the relevant developments and communicating them to the public in a concise and fun way. If that person isn’t already on the team then we should start looking for them
