Don't you think is a rather unhelpful attitude ?  I'm not convinced
that you're really demonstrating here a willingness to engage with
Herbert to find a solution.  It's a shame that, for example, your
conversation with Herbert had to get CC'd to the Technical Committee
so soon - clearly you hadn't yet finished even quoting standards at
each other.

I think it would be much more helpful if we all tried to be
constructive - after all, we are engaged in a joint project, not a
war.  I think Herbert has been showing a willingness to engage and a
constructive attitude, in at least the mails I see here so far.  (I
haven't gone and read the bug log yet).

If you have a complaint about another developer's personal behaviour,
then you should take it up with the project management.
