No, they have not been addressed promptly. There exists content on

which is not supposed to be there. I'll quote Noel:

"Thinking on it, we should probably delete those files, which were never
approved by either the Incubator or Cocoon PMCs.  Baring commentary to 
the contrary, I will do so within the next day or so (leaving time for
legitimate contrary views)."

What lenya should ideally be doing now is providing commentary and 
evidence to the contrary, explaining and de-escalating the situation. If 
that's not possible, lenya should perhaps attempt to come up with 
reasonable and less drastic measures (removing then re-adding files to 
the distribution server pushes changes to dozens of mirrors) that are 
agreeable to the incubator as well. Furthermore, lenya should do all the 
neccessary work to alleviate all concerns (not Noel, not the incubator).

C'mon guys, a mistake or two have been made, which is fine! That's why 
we have an incubation process in the first place :-D. Live and learn. Go 
fix things. Don't draw lines in the sand.

Well in some cases it /is/ relevant that a large part of lenya 
individuals are wyona employees. While its a task of lenya (not 
individuals there; the responsibility AFAIC is collective) to make sure 
there's no reason for concern wrt all this stuff, I think everyone 
recognizes wyona, the company, has a part to play there as well. Right?

duly noted, and lenya-dev added back to CC list. Guys, you may have 
missed some useful bits of info. Please go read recent general@incubator 
archives to make sure you haven't.
