Yes, I saw blaming on both sides. At times I was blaming as well. And so in my 
surely inaccurate, subjectively colored memory did almost everyone else in a 
more or less apparent way. Also in the arguments that appeared to be purely 
technical. Also most of these as far as I remember contained a notion of "I am 
right and you are wrong".

The truth is: *Both* sides have been involved in the conflict.

Any workable solution lies beyond blame, however.

Any workable solution lies beyond "I am right and you are wrong".

This needs letting go of blame. I am not yet there, I just recently started to 
let go of blame (but in other, for me more important areas of live for now). 
Who is? Who truly let go of blaming the other side in this discussion?

Have a Merry Christmas,
