With this clarification, I'm content to confirm you as the maintainer of the
developers-reference, if you still believe that's necessary.

I also think this appeal to the TC might have been avoided entirely if you

as you've now explained here.  Of course people don't like to follow rules
that they don't understand the rationale for.
