My understanding is that all of that IS known, but there is nothing to be gained
by publicly stating something like "Joe Blow caused this failure".  It has been
stated that it is known what caused the problem and how it happened.  I have
little doubt that it is known who messed up, and it does nothing to to help
AMSAT or it's members by telling who it is.  That person undoubtedly knows, and
I'm sure feels bad enough about it.  We don't need 1000 people telling him that
he messed up.
