This is how it goes.
Nick, Frank and me doesn't coomunicate that much in private, at least
not about Geany :).
The remaining things most often should kept private, haha.

Er, no. Not really as far as I remember. I think to remember that I
wrote once in a while Nick a mail like 'any objections in updating
Scintilla', he answered no and I did. Something like this, not really
intensive discussions.
What we did also in private sometimes was talking about releases, i.e.
when to release what everyone has still to do and time to make the
release. We could have done this on the list but I think the benefit
would have been small. This was really more

And that is how it should be and should stay. I can speak only for
myself: I didn't want to exclude the community in any decisions at any
point. There are just a few, little and not so important things which
don't need a 200 mails thread on the list.
Again, when this happened, this was nothing critical to Geany.

I'm sorry to hear you got the feeling there is anything happening
behind the scenes.
