Hi Markus,

I do agree with you. Bigger changes should be announced and have been
announced in the past.

On the other hand, it seems that these things weren't discussed with
Christoph. I don't care about the reasons, I just want to encourage
Christoph and (his mentor) Robert to coordinate such changes better.
