+Mathieu Roy wrote ``Gna! owe nothing to users. We do provide a service

+I do not agree with everything; we owe them some respect for trusting
+us and chosing our platform. But it is true we are, primarily,
+offering a service, not asking for one.
+Having a lot of users is something nice, but keep in mind that we
+privilege quality of quantity. That's why we have such a heavy
+approval process. We prefer to have a few truly free software project,
+that understand our philosophy, rather than a bunch of projects whose
+maintainers vaguely heard about 'open source' :)
+Last, when somebody is leaving, or gets angry about a bug that we
+still didn't have the time or opportunity to fix, keep in mind that
+such people are the best of our users: they communicated with us. Most
+people will simply leave without a word. It is tempting to get angry
+against such users, such 'quitters', but this is not improving
+anything, and will only encourage people to stay silent.
