i apologize for overstating,
i took that idea from hearing a couple queries for info/reports from

heard has been from you. whatever amount of work you are comfortable
doing on this project is fine with me, and i apologize for bringing it
up in a way that muddies my main issue - i still desire public
reporting from noisetor as spelled out in our agreement with them.
