I find your lack of reading comprehension... disturbing.

To reassert the my full statement, as you so hastily truncated:

But that isn't the case. If it was, you wouldn't have a blog post
up about how git-fc has default aliases (and such), while git
does not. You wouldn't have another post exclaiming
frustration at the pace of development, and how certain
contributions of yours have been ignored.

Sure, a subset of your patches are being accepted, but if
the ones you cared about weren't, this discussion
wouldn't have even occurred.

Not at all. You propose solutions, rather than *just* calling
for any solution to be accepted. I'm the meantime, the
community decides that some of your proposals
aren't good ideas, and decide to consider others in due

Only code-free. And that's because this is a people problem,
Felipe, not a code problem.
