Eh.. maybe :-P

Maybe  "Huh?"... "Hrm...?" "Whaddyamean?" "Wha-what?"...

Though they all seem to end up suggesting that I am surprised.  Funny  
that the plain english version makes it seem like I am being a prick  
or something :-P

Sure.  Did the PMC do any vetting for JIRA or Confluence?

Maaaaybbbeeeee not.  :-) I know sometimes I misjudge the tone of  
email, :-P, and then reply with similar tone to that which I  
interpreted ;-) :-P

IMO best not to think about tone at all when reading email... more  
often than not the interpreted tone is more a manifestation of your  
own mood than what the text of the message actually indicates. :-)
