Are you considering my concern futile? I'm starting to be really
annoyed by the way you handle all of this. I passed sometimes to think
on that problem before posting a response to a somewhat
passive-agressive mail. I always said I preferred and I would be OK
for a solution that propose a 2-way channel. And this is not a theory
or anything (are you putting the hand on something hot before saying
it's hot?) it is a a clear concern.  If we have a solution to do this,

Now I also said I would prefer to not use github PR at all and would
prefer a simpler workflow than multiplying the code sources. I'm
working on a mail that will propose something like this.
