Oh no, you certainly did not.

What I meant is that first you reject a patch because it's not within the
scope of rel-eng and then two weeks later all of a sudden it *is* within
the scope of rel-eng but you neglect the fact that a patch is in your
mailbox somewhere. You did not say "I don't like the patch" or "This should
be done differently", you said "this is not going to be in pungi because
rel-eng has no use for it".

Please do not put words in my mouth and please consider stopping to
patronize me like that.

I did not say they are not within their rights. I do say they are/were
wrong to do so, and that is my opinion.

I'm going to leave it at that or this is just going to have to become
another thread.
