I am sorry, I shouldn't have lost it.  However, I suppose you can
understand how I feel putting a lot of effort into it and hearing
someone insinuate stuff like this without even checking that I've filed
the bugs a few months ago.

I would really appreciate if you didn't make such statements in public
without verifying your claims first.  I have never had any problems with
people either joining Python team or 'touching Python packages', as long
as they follow the same standards as people in Python team do.

For example, this means *testing* packages.  I don't see a problem with
people adding py3.8 to packages.  I do have a problem when people add
py3.8 when there are explicit test regressions with py3.8.

I might be wrong but I think it's a common sense and not something
specific to Python team that you're supposed not to break stuff.
 Especially when you don't maintain that stuff and the resulting fallout
is going to hit somebody else.

Furthermore, I have no clue what 'full QA deputy power' is.  I don't
know what's your source, and I can only guess what person are you
referring to.  However, there's no such thing as 'QA deputy power', QA
is making decisions as a team and I don't think there was any
disciplinary action taken recently.
