Yes please, reimar, maybe i remember wrong but my memory said you did in one
of these past flames with uoti on a public mailinglist say something to the
effect that it would be better under "some circumstances" to close his
account. As said i do not remember the exact wording ...
If you (reimar) dont remember it ill of course retract my statement.

You commited to code maintained by him, he commited to code maintained by you

Ivans behavior is objectionable to me but so was your original commit.
Why cant you and ivan not just accept that you both made a mistake by
taking an action that provocated the other, deliberate or not?
> This is being done deliberately,
I belive ivan thinks that of your commit as well.
Also if someone bumps into you and you spill your coffee all over your clothes
and you think that he did it deliberately and as a result you take the little
bit left in the cup and spill it over his head.
Who is the evil one?
The guy who did walk with his eyes on the secretary to his right who
unintentionally bumped into you or
You who now deliberately dumped the remaining brown liquid over his head?
> Uoti did not act deliberately in this

I belive that ivan belives that you did it intentionally.
Besides you, ivan and uoti are all totally incapable of resolving the
controversy they caused non deliberately.
Neither of you is capable to just say "sorry, i thought that wouldnt be
controversal, ill revert and we can discuss what course of action that would
satisfy everyone involved"
Its because you all are a bunch of <censored> who all
know they are always correct and who dont yield 1 hairbreadth.

you are confused, a single polite reply from uoti would have made a huge
difference to me. But the only thing he tells us is that he is correct
that the policy is irrelevant and that he will act by only his common
sense. And that he of course never made any mistake and will never
correct any commit others complain about ...
(of course except the commit message noone complained about except himself)

It is not what we do, but why we do it that matters.
