Surely, that could have been done better (and I don't like that bman
didn't contact me) but the repeated claims that it came out of nowhere
are plain bs.  The bug for discussing what to do [1] was open for a year
and 3 months.  The only person replying on the bug was maekke, and I
think I've talked with some other member on IRC but don't recall whom

Now, I'm sorry if you feel like people didn't ask for your opinion.
 However, if you really cared about graphics project then you should've
either joined the team or at least monitored the alias, and replied to
the bug.  Attacking people because they executed the action nobody
objected to is not nice.

Again, I would like to remind you the golden rule: if you want something
to be the way you want it to be, do the work or convince somebody to do
it.  Making unjustified demands of others, ignoring problems and then
complaining is not helping anyone.  This applies to everyone, regular
developers and Council members alike.

He's not the first and not the last person to use wiki wrong.  I'd argue
the problem is that MW is retarded and it's easy to get it wrong.

However, instead of using this as an excuse to strengthen your attack
you could've just pinged wiki admins to restore the page (hey, we don't
monitor everything that happens on the wiki!).  This is done now, enjoy.

Didn't you just argue against using any information to drive decisions
on package removal?  Then indeed masks are the only tool we have.
