Hi,

On a personal note, I’d like to thank those in this weekend’s threads who have

I agree. Thanks. Let's try to all learn from that, please. I believe we can
disagree politely and respectfully. And we must do so. We can still express
anything we want to express. It's just a bit harder, it takes a bit longer
this way, but it's so much more efficient to have your real message
reaching people.

Jeff Jirsa’s diplomacy stands out to me as particularly mature.

True, that was my opinion as well while reading the threads. I also want to
take the chance to say that this applies to you as well Jonathan. IMHO,
your message is just what the community needed right now. So thanks for the
clarification...

... And for what you have done in the last years. As Aaron said at the
Summit, you, as an individual, have changed my life, and many other, in a
very good way. From my first message in the user mailing list you answered
to this last message in the dev list to preserve the community, even after
stepping down from the project chair. The amount, variety and quality of
work you have done and the way you are behaving are inspiring for me.

As has been said before, we’re all on the same team here.  Now let’s get back

Sounds good :-).

A community is nothing but what we bring to it as individuals. Looking
forward to working all together, with our disagreements, but peacefully, in
the same direction, once again.

C*heers,
