I’m coming late to the party (had to make popcorn first).
Is there a summary somewhere that explains the positions, who holds them, and possibly why?
A blog-post, an article, any other opinion piece?

(WG-chairs, this is not a question for you; Adrian had some wise words on this.)
I’d still like to understand what’s going on without investing hours into sorting messages and guessing company agenda.
(Normally, I’d have asked this question on the hallway and would have got a good summary in two minutes, but no hallways in 2020.)
