I agree with this. 
Just to be exhaustively clear - I have published announcement about UH project and seed offer *once*. Then after a few days I received Greg's question about whether it is going to be a foundation or a corporation. In his email he put CCG community into CC and I replied to all to keep the discussion public. I now see that his email is not on the website (https://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-credentials/2018Dec/) probably because his reply was filtered by mailing list's spam filters, but it got to me as I was in "To:" and when I replied to all it got to all.
 
I think as result of this discussion our community is becoming family-like as now we discuss who started to fight and why)))

I think transparency and simplicity is the best approach to explain and _start building_ such complicated and multi-layered project as UH.

I was trying to make my replies comprehensive and appropriate. I am sorry if some of them were taken as disregarding, it was not my intention.

Adam, Kim could you please share the link to the RWoT Slack channel or this is for former participants only?
