Ceata hasn't made this decision for Parabola, Ceata has made this
decision for itself (Ceata). There are two parties in this agreement and
each one has the right to terminate the agreement unilaterally. Ceata
has just done that.

And I remind you that the text of the agreement has been intensively
debated in Parabola community and its final form was adopted by
consensus. 60 days is what you have agreed it should be the deadline.
