That blame certainly belongs to me and I apologize for jumping that and
adding it to contrib without any -hackers discussion.
It is definitely a timing issue since I write this very email from JFK,
boarding a flight to Hong Kong in less than an hour and will be mostly
offline for the rest of the week.
I don't see how timing has anything to do with this. You could have
added it between beta1 and beta2 after sufficient hackers discussion.
Doing it the way you did with no warning, right before beta, and then
leaving is the worse of all times. I am surprised we are not backing
out the patch and requiring that the patch go through the formal review
This is not the first time you have had trouble with patches. There was
an issue with your patch of February, 2007:
That email might contain the keyword COMMIT, but it doesn't have to do
with anything I committed to CVS. The trigger changes you are referring
to have been discussed and a patch for discussion was presented here:
(In summary, you had to be coaxed to explain your patch to the
community.) Basically, I am not sure you understand the process that
has to be followed, or feel you are somehow immune from following it.
I don't see how you leap from the above example to that conclusion.
