And this whole subthread is about my impression that the policy that
chose bzr over its competitors is, possibly, damaging for Free
Software. That's all. I'm not proposing to ditch bzr, nor advocating
git, nor asking others to do work for me. All that is your strawman
argument. You go to the point of arguing with me about quotes that I
included (and marked as such) on my previous message, as if I were the
author of such quotes. Once you calm down to the point of understanding
what I actually wrote, I'll be happy to discuss the first point
mentioned on this paragraph, which is what I care about. In private,
please, as we already created enough noise with this.
