I have been told that I am/was fast and on reflection found they are
right. I was also told I should at least give them a week or more as
people need time to formulate replies. Hence, in order to be fair to
them, let us give them 2 weeks i.e. 20th April 2017 to at least up
with some response.
At the same time, let me also point out that the wiki document is also
incomplete on the topic of conflict resolution or what people should
do once they find they have done a mistake, how to make amends ?
Meanwhile, people could put their 2 bits at
especially if you disagree with my point of view. I welcome all and
