I am sorry, Andreas. That's not what I meant. I don't blame Edgar in
any way. I am trying to understand what he is writing. My biggest
concern is about his comment on the trunk since he wants to be part of
the release team. Nobody pretends the trunk is a perfect solution but
it's only logical to assume that he will have to deal with the trunk
unless he (or someone else) comes up with a viable alternative that
people will adopt. There's no conspiracy with the trunk, right? :)

I'm interested to read what Edgar has to write about his comments.
