    There is a lot of drama in the Manjaro Linux Forum regarding a change in the teams composition.

    A post about a change of treasurer for Manjaro community funds has brought up many questions, such as: what is a treasurer for if you remove them once they object to something? Considering he was only applying the agreed upon policy.

    It also brings into light that the project head tried to censor Jonathon: this forum thread got unlisted by Philip Mรผller, then relisted by moderator @cscs, then unlisted again and @cscs was demoted from being a moderator. Phil has thus far made no comment on the topic other than:

    Can everyone stay calm and make this not worse as it already is? Unlisting is for a reason.

    Jonathon wanted to post the entire private chat to let the community decide for themselves on how serious it is, but Phil has refused to share it, clearly censoring the community (and this is putting it lightly).

    Jonathon has been with the project for 7 years and has been a very important figure. He is heading to EndeavourOS where many others may join him.
