I think we're pretty much set with having per-tag maintainers. It
would be great if you could be the "owner" of the TinyMCE project
node, maintain the 5.2 tag, and have Allie / Steve maintain the 5.1

Let's just settle on that and never speak of these dark times again :P

Ideally, we can converge on best practices going forward (5.3, The Reunion Tag).

Err....no, there was no name calling: there were clear points of view
why the existing features HAD to be editable through the web UI --
from ease of use to multisite compatability.

He/She/whatever is out. Gerhard removed the JS files from TinyMCE plus.

borismann on Skype, or call me. But I think we've got it settled if
you're OK with this. BTW -- thanks for taking the time for this long
write up.
