And I posted a reply to Greg on G+ and at the time it was said that there was 
nothing to be seen yet. As I understand from you and from him, there's still 
nothing to be seen.

That's understandable.

What I don't understand is why you were presenting that during the fd.o 
summit, before presenting it to the D-Bus community. Not even to post the link 
to where you were developing the code.

And you know there's quite a great deal of knowledge in the D-Bus ML. So you 
know that the people here will be able to help you a lot. To be honest, I do 
not understand how you can have *any* discussions *anywhere* but on this 
mailing list.

Why should you discuss a D-Bus reimplementation elsewhere?

I asked some people that question and the answer that satisfied me is "we're 
experimenting, we quite frankly don't need the bikeshed just yet. But soon.". 
No offence meant or taken on that, I know how things are once you go public.
