After seeing your repeated attempts to spread misinformation, I was
planning to totally ignore you, but because "What's cooking" is one
of the important project-wide report, I'll respond one last time.

Even though I was originally leaning towards moving them into core
(after all, why would I have merged the bottom three commits to
'next' otherwise?), I was later convinced, during the discussion
that started with John Keeping's objection [*1*], that I was wrong,
and if they moves outside contrib/, the best direction for them to
go is not to the core but to become independent third-party plug-in
for allow users to pick up the latest without being restricted by
our release schedule to ensure no-regressions to the entire system.

At some point I have to decide what would be the best next step, and
your counter-arguments did not make much sense to me.  The decision
is that the best course for these two is either staying in contrib/
if they are not ready, or becoming independent third-party projects
if they are.

Is making that decision as the maintainer unilateral?

I would not mind asking the others, as your discussion tactic seems
to be "repeated voices start sounding like a chorus, and a chorus is
project concensus".

Those who are observing from the sideline, please raise your hand if
you think the three-line "Clarification" Felipe gave us is a fair
and accurate clarification.  Anybody?

I also do not mind seeing hands raised of those who do not agree,
even though I already know that they would be a silent majority.

Remember, I intend to make this message the "one last time" one.  In
the past, any time you made absurd claims by twisting facts and what
other people said, I tried to contain the damage to innocent
bystanders (who may not know Git and the history of the discussion
well enough to make their own judgment) by double-checking facts and
correcting you.  These days, I still do the same fact-checking,
which steals time from the project that would be better spent in
other ways, but because I know your counter-arguments will be
nitpicking on subissues that do not matter in the larger picture and
resulting back-and-force will end up wasting a lot more time without
anything to improve the project, I started to apply the "do not feed
a troll".

I'll stop wasting time even on fact-checking from now on whenever
you say anything.  It's not worth the project's time.
