How irrational is me wondering about [1] below...

[1] nomcom2015 mailing list breached/exploited + the hole had always
existed but was fixed on that day +  we have information that there is a
dump of nomcom2015 circulating in the community (who is circulating it) +
that could undermine ongoing elections + but our investigation indicate a
configuration error that could enable anyone to exploit or breach  the
mailing list + we know who the individuals are + but we will not press

So thank you...

the archive was known to be circulating in the community, though the extent
of circulation was not known.

Look, nomcoms mandate is clear and their recommendations/decisions
accompanied by the decisions of the board is final ref: AfriNIC elections
and all.

So whatever the contents of nomcoms mailing list....My curiosity is how the
supposedly circulated dumps could have affected  the ongoing election???

Lets not take things lightly no matter how they seem.
