Ah, missed that.

Here we get into a perception thing again.... how would one define
someone's activity to downgrade them?  I myself am a burst worker.  Do
stuff, do other stuff, live life... go through issue queue in a rampage,
repeat ;)

Personal privacy?  Paranoia, anti-social :)

Well, I can see who the other maintainers are :) and was aware of
Derek's idea's on the subject and remember Dries mock up.  I am sure
many others do as well so it's a good reminder that not everyone tracks
what was said 6 months ago vs. the decisions that were made to get the
progress on the solid foundation done so that the fancy bits could
actually have some hope of being accomplished.

I believe that Derek replied on the issues already, I am merely
commenting on the diversity of knowledge on the list.
