Don't be so touchy, I really was curious about exactly what Reinhard disagreed with. +/-1 works perfectly when the original idea is unambiguous, but in this case can mean many things. Probably he meant -1 to everything, but I'm not sure.
For the record, I did think that Randal came on a bit strong with the "you broke the contribution process". However, I'm giving him the benefit of the doubt and chalking it up to fatigue.
BTW, I was surprised to see that Matthew feels that you and he "set Squeak back 2 years... and caused the Pharo split". I certainly hope that he's not beating himself up about it as much as that quote suggests. Many people continue to appreciate the efforts that you made, even if we're doing something different now.
