no (IIRC)

that first statement is not true. I think it is unfair to the other
people that contribute and work on phoenix to keep making statements
like this. Please stop.

The second started out as true and will shift toward not true if things
go happily. If not it will probably become zero person's work.

Peter has never pretended to be a leader (disagree? just find me an
example or two :).

Two more objections: I object to "single healthy and diverse community"
not existing (but keep saying it for long enough and it will come true
(I think paraphrasing yourself ;)), I also object to "his code" (again
keep saying it long enough....)

ta-dah: disputable facts :D

another "Rule" from Sunir:
The task for the leader of a team project is to work on the team, not
the project.

I'd say "primary task", but otherwise I'll happily say that with you.
