An intent to act certain way is not the act itself.  The intent has to
be un-equivocally established and stand third party scrutiny
irrespective of what parties to dispute claim.  I say that I am changing
my intent.  It is *my* intent right and I should seek your approval for
it? Absurd, I say.

I *didn't* move the file from ./contrib/ to lisp/ in Org repo.  Contrib
files are for all practical purposes non-Emacs files. Bastien didn't
consult me while moving those files.  Prove me wrong, I will accept
defeat and walk away.

How can anyone even claim all-your-code-written-or-unwritten-is-mine.  I
 have signed my contract for a nominal $1 exchange.
 should be the spirit.

People are disregarding my "moral rights" over my work and pushing me in
a corner to act a certain way to serve their own interests.  This I feel
is plain wrong and an act of snatching or appropriation.
