 there's no "winning", david - there's only the goal.

 that's a complete and total misinterpretation, *and* as i've told you
twice now including this time is an out-of-date assessment.

 i apologise but i cannot help you with that.

 your choice, david.  the rest of the conversation, which you cut,
said "please feel free to contribute to the policies of the community"
and you chose to ignore that: that is also your choice.

 perfect.  in this way, you get to contribute in a productive way to
the project, without "noise" on the mailing list i.e. you get to use
the available communications resources.

 amery, henrik and others *have* pointed out that the conversation you
engaged in was best held on github's bugtracker, and you've chosen to
fixate on something which is past and out-of-date.  i cannot help you
with that choice, made by you.

 ok.  onwards.
