Johannes,
it´s really interesting to read that by someone taking such big words like
"community effort" into his mouth.
Fact is: That material has been published for the first time in September of
the last year! Weren´t you maintainer too?
What do you pragmatically understand by "community effort", please?

 b) it mixes multiple independent

What is the pragmatic alternative if so many modules were just broken within
the maintainership of your personal authority? I am sure I won´t get no
answer from you to that.

Just incredible to read those words from a person like you.

TALKING after 5 months?????
After all you´ve proven that neither your words nor your behaviour is in no
way reliable at all, Johannes. Shame on you!
What upsets most is your and also Abraham´s attitude looking for reasons NOT
DO DO something accepted by others, like lamb headed bureaucrats. You never
look for reasons for even partially do things that others expect you to do.
If someone with such an attitude talks about "community efforts" this is
another example for intolerable and outstanding of hypocrisy.
The hidden concept behind is nothing but hindrance out of reasons of
incapability! It´s blocking capable peoples efforts out of disinterest and
incapability. That is my impression about it, and I am still waiting to see
being proved the opposite.
