I didn't meant that I am missing a form of communication. Actually I
missed the techblog, but that's a different story.
We were well aware of the idea that WMF and Pediapress wanted to work to
make ZIM in Collection extension happen. I expected that there will be a
lot of technical questions during the implementation phase which will
show up on dev-l, and that didn't happen - what is a good sign.
So we knew that there was an idea and WMF and PediaPress wanted to work
on it and it looks like the project wasn't ready yet - and suddenly,
it's done, it's here, it works... that's amazing.
