Your points about Drupal community decision process might be valid, but your
attitude and methods are completely wrong. You can't jump and say "you are
doing that wrong, I'll tell you how you need to do that, and you will have
to implement what I say yourself, because I'll not be around, why don't you
do that? please do that quickly!". No wonder why you are pissing everyone

Next time, try this instead: "hey, I think we are doing that wrong, I
believe that we can do better. I'm ready to try to implement that if some
people are willing to try my proposal. I'll be there to experiment and after
some time, we could decide if we want to go on or not."
