        What is so impolite in pointing you to an excellent reference,
 and gently reminding you that increasing team size (to, say, the
 number of Debian contributors)  is detrimental to product quality and
 ability to deliver on time?

Manoj, it's clear he was trolling, it was far from gently reminding me, come on.

        So we only force people to be on a team "in some critical
 cases"? Still sounds like a bad idea to me.

What's your problem with me? Henrique wrote the same thing some
messages ago, why you keep replying everything i post here?

If i'm right, your point here is to keep the things as they're, teams
and individuals maintaining stuff without any changes from the
procedures we're following now. If yes, make it clear and reply my
messages like you do with others, right now it seems that you've
decided to attack me.

        First you chastize me for not speaking for myself, and then
 when someone does, you yell at them for doing so.

I did it yes, i thought you were wearing your "captain cap" and make
jokes about if i'm subscribed to private or not. Who cares?

Btw, your sentence have nothing to do with my view on Matthew's reply.
I said to Matthew that he was being rude and told me to fix
human-to-human communication. It wasn't "Matthew shut up and/or speak
by yourself". Do you see?

        Wonderful consistency :)

After 6 years around you start learning some tricks with the cabal.
