The problem is the if they announce an AP, there will be some users who hold off on working on it and then if that AP faces delays or fails to materialize, they will have angry customers posting about it. It just risks eroding good will and reputation when they are trying to rebuild both.

I'd they rather do what they need to do to open the content market up so creators can load their own content for sale. Then LWD just needs to take their cut without being responsible for content timelines. Which in turn allows them to focus their resources on moving on down the software-development road.

As happy as I am for the content market, they are a software company and a platform. Not content creators. They are only content creators now because they need to prime the pump and get some content in there.

I don't think people are looking for times (I know I am not), just what's in the hopper. Delays are not a big deal, as we are asking for whats "actually being entered" not what they hope to enter, so there should be low chance for issues beyond a time to deliver.

If I knew the PF DMG for example is in the hopper, I am not going to waste time entering rules (I have been for years as needed). and I may go and make some changes to accommodate the addition.

It isn't the release date that matters, its just knowing its in the works. Beauty is, there isn't any creation going on, its simply entering and debugging, at least for non LWD works anyway.
