Well, why did you not brought this up in a mail (either on dev or on
pmc) then? Why you decided to just remove it? Why do you think that it
was not worth asking me personal or discussing in it in the open before
doing it?

...and in the end it was about the tagline!!!

It was something that I stated in my tagline that raised your concern.

I disagree. Like I stated now some times. The live-site.xml should be
coming from the user feedback and less from us editing personal

So, why do you not go ahead and delete the cocoon history page? You do
not need any permission for that either, right?

That is just the wrong approach IMO. Some stuff we discussing stuff to
the dead end (see the search plugin I am trying to commit) and others
are just done without discussion. 

I do not understand this. :(

Can we just not find a medium?
