It can certainly be misinterpreted this way. I think we just need more
communication about why one may need a revert.

Revert requests are OK. There's nothing wrong with that and any committer
can veto a change but they just need to provide reasons. I think we just
need to help people understand this.

Selcuk I'm sure meant no harm and can provide more reasoning.

That's also another option but let's just communicate about whatever
difficulties or problems a commit might introduce. If someone is having
problems as a result of commits let's get those reasons out there on the

I have a feeling the code is starting to move before some of the work can
be finished on it and that might produce discomfort. But we're not mind
readers so we need to communicate this.
