No, please don't. We don't want the whole issue to be re-raised again in
a new sub-thread. Let's move on.

FWIW, in my view Raphael's claim is not such a strong claim that needs
the motivation you are asking for. I think we can all imagine how a
"fight" like those between Guillem and Ian can delay work on one side:
you have emotionally to deal with the fight, and you have technically to
work with the FTP guys to deal with the issue (for example to explain
the motivation so that they lift the upload restriction). All these
things take time away.
