Follow up, it's roten:

There are words, and facts, unfortunately..

According to DConf, Atila is working to get that mess out of 
experimental, hopefully he won't repeat same mistakes as Andrei, 
and step up to remove all of that crap that holds the language 

I can offer a hand if he wants to, i personally would hold them 
for a D3, if that effect happen, making a bigger impact is better 
than a few in an ocean full of mistakes
