I have to retain myself to not insult you.
I have followed all your advices, and the only thing you're telling me
now is "please go play somewhere else".
This is not the kind of transparency I expect from the release manager.
It's not like my figures are completely unrelated to the actual problem.
They describe the current situation ...

It was explained just below.

Yes for 2/3 of them. None for 1/3 of them.

This is absolutely not related. Maybe it's time to have new BTS
maintainers instead of waiting on episodic work from you and doogie.
It's your responbility to find some help if you're not able to do
everyting you wanted to do. Release manager is not enough ?

Your time is more important than mine ?

Call that a sub-problem and you're done. I'm fed up with your "lessons".

Blablabli ... bothered to read the subject of the mail ? It's about
"release management". Yes ! You're progressing fast too ...

This is a list of discussion. We post mail to have input and feedback.
It's not (only) a "todo list" where we come each day "ok, i'll develop that
because it looks funny".
I don't need you to repeat me "go and try". I can't. I have no way
to impose anything to hundreds of developers. That's why we discuss, we
try to see if a little experiment is possible and worth it.
For this precise "problem" I don't have any idea of how we could
experiment it to see if it brings anything to us. But maybe someone
else on this list does have ... hence the post.
By the end of the week, you might well understand what collaboration

Your followups are not better, really. And you're taking a malicious
pleasure to try to make funny of myself.
Sorry for my rudeness, I'm really patient, but you managed to highly
annoy me. Each time I followed your advice to try to discuss seriously,
you have replied with useless puns. I'll stop wasting my time now and go
hack on something else.
