I think that's the problem: you chose, instead of discussing ideas and plans that may be non-trivial or controversial on the mailing list. My wish is that you try more to detect things like that. Sometimes it's just a matter of dropping a mail on the list saying you wish to change this and that because of X or Y. Even if noone responds (which is unlikely), you have at least lazy consensus. Apparently, my wording was too strong which was only to get you to listen. This is probably an expression of my inability to communicate what I was trying to get across. For that I apologize and I will keep trying to keep my tone in check. Jeremias Maerki
