since you explain below the relevant discussions were closed.

I'm not.  Being subscribed there is a privilege, not an obligation.

Sorry, but since these were closed discussions, I really cannot say
anything intelligent about them.  I'm surprised that you expect me to
know their contents somehow.

Anyway, Nikos answered my question directly, for which I'm grateful.
