I'm not currently interested in the given platforms, and while I really hope to never be interested again, I can't rule it out. It'd be nice to be able to follow the discussions, without necessarily contributing. But I also understand I if those involved don't want to include those in my position, since I can just read your updates, and accept them without knowing all the reasons behind it. :) I'm ok either way.
