Hello Andy,

Would you mind to introduce yourself?

Does your statement

> subscriber.

indicates that you are not aware about the current status of ROOT and the ROOT progress?

Before starting any discussion, it would be nice to know where your information about ROOT coming from.
It may have spared us a lot of talking hours.

Are you an active ROOT user / developer for example ?

Best regards
