Common sense is all I ask for. And the common sense is: do not trample over 
components for which you are not a lead maintainer, especially for 
components (or ports) that _do_ have active maintainers.
Give others the time to respond and do not commit unless you have _explicit_ 
agreement from those maintainers.

Just like Otavio, I _do_ see your contributions, but I also strongly feel 
that you're often way too pushy, both in discussions (like over gnash), 
migrations (grub2) and commits.
I have a very string feeling that I cannot trust your judgement because 
you're always wanting to jump 10 steps ahead, without due considerations of 
risks and proper timing.

As someone who does a lot of coordinating for D-I, I constantly have the 
feeling that I have to be extra alert for whatever next crazy change you'll 
want to push past everybody and that's just not a comfortable feeling.

As you may know my prime concern is to keep things reliable and working 
_while_ still moving forward.
