Au contraire. I believe Robert knows pretty much what he's talking about. 
Even though his form is not always what I consider cordial, the content of 
his mails and his reasoning is sound.

No need for shitlists. Please read _again_ what exactly Robert is 
advocating.

I'll even repeat it for you:

	Go and orphan your packages, if you want to focus just on 
	upstream.

He's not advocating forcing people out or forcing them to orphan packages. 
What he suggests is that people wanting to concentrate on upstream 
development are able to do that without being burdened by maintaining 
packages for distributions.
