The belief-based request was in reasonable (if imperfect) voice and
the objections were mostly attacking the suggested action rather
than the manner of expression. Andrew's claims seem true and seem
to have gone unchallenged on -devel. I welcome any DDs reviewing
the -private archive, to see which DPL candidates did what on this.
Matthew Garrett, to support your claim, will you make public any
objection(s) you posted to that August 2005 thread, as an example,
or state that you posted none?
For my part, I did not post to it (travelling and then jet-lagged,
not handling all list mail), which I now think is a shame, given
the disappointing outcomes.

Well, I'm fairly sure that's not his belief, so believing that would
be pretty stupid. Nice misdirection.

It was not Andrew who started flaming.
