What I see on that Merge Request is an occasional contributor adding
code related to an internal, debug-related environment variable to avoid
its abuse and then making an insulting reference to the people who are
advicing others to incur on said abuse. Then another occasional
contributor comes to close the comments (good) with a blunt phrase

Implying that that episode illustrates the general attitude of that
community and that it is relevant to how Emacs should decide its
relation to the products of such community is... unfair, to say it
