I am sorry . I think my bad English made you misunderstand what I meant .

As I mentioned Axis2 is a very useful project and we can not make the
changes as we wish (since the project is matured).  If I had  a chance
to go though Andreas's  patch I would have argued the same way as I did
with Isuru. 

Having said that  when I implement a feature we can not consider all the
projects using it (For example I do not know what kind of features of
Axis2 that Tuscany uses), however if I know I am going to break some of
the existing stuff in Axis2 I will not do that or will not let others to
do it (like in Isuru's case). But if I got to know that I have break
something on other dependent project (though JIRA or emails) , then I
would consider fixing the issue to solve their problem too.

I hope you can understand it is hard for me to find time to go though
Axis2 mails, when Andreas's patch mailing thread taking place I was so
busy with my assignments so did not have  time. Unfortunately I had a
chance to go though Isuru's mail yesterday, that wasted my whole day for

It is not double stand, I already mentioned the rational behind that. It
about time...,Otherwise I do not care who the person is if he trying to
break anything, I have done that to Dims, Glen, Amila and few others (of
course when I had time).

I think this will be the last time I am going to say "NO" to any new
feature adding or existing stuff breaking, I will simply do not care it
anymore (I do not have time to waste). But will still to reply to mails
in axis-user list.
