I wouldn't call it apalling. It doesn't look like anything criminal has happened. Small projects like this come and go all the time. It did some good while it was running. Hopefully someone will be able to step forward and take over so that funds continue to come in and get distributed as grants to deserving organizations.
Jerritt hasn't done anything wrong other than not publicizing the fact that they're in need of new leadership. I have no doubt in my mind that he plans to use these funds for the benefit of the community and not for his own personal gain.
I'm a LinuxFund card holder and I run a project which has received funding. I'd like to see the project continue.
I only hope people won't abandon their LinuxFund cards because of the current setbacks. If they do the project might not be viable when new leadership takes over.
