And that's my beef my Branden. I do appreciate his work as a
maintainer, but he's overly brash in his interactions with other
people. As the DPL is exposed to a lot of public attention, I think
Branden's personality is not suited to the position. That's very
unfortunate because I think his energy would bring a lot of good
things to the helm of the project.
Hi Branden :-) Flame on!
