Message I got from Zooko re: their efforts to recover the missing Zcash trusted setup ceremony transcript.

Given there is a chance at a market moving hundreds of millions of dollars screw up, I don't want to be in possession of any insider info. So I'm making this transparent.
I'm disappointed that they have chosen to delay investigating this for months in an effort to release Sapling first rather than just being upfront about it.…
Something a friend just sent me seconds ago: "Thanks for telling me early so I could move all my coins"

They're joking of course, but quite seriously this kind of insider trading thing is exactly why I don't want to be in possession of any insider info on this.r
Right now I only own trivial amounts of Zcash (iirc about $100 worth).
@zooko I'm going to reply here because this isn't a security issue in the normal sense. We're not fixing a vulnerability here, we're fixing an embarrassing lack of record keeping that only shows potential incompetence or fraud.
@zooko Anyway, you guys even hired a journalist to go through that hard drive of materials I sent you, so I can't see how you've forgotten about this. Rather this seems to me like shifting blame.

Secondly how did you guys lose those files? Who else are you recovering stuff from?
