There was no animus or personality involved in this statement. Follow
the thread to find out where it "broke" and who broke it.
I will kill this thread; I should have limited it to responding that
our ruleset inhibits vetoes of tags and releases; then a second fresh
thread not to anyone's comment in particular explaining the basis of
2.5.0-alpha. My bad, I apologize for mixing the two, and will more
carefully avoid this in the future.
