Oh?  Then what is the explanation for Kevin publicly soliciting
an individual to do something that recent discussion has shown
the group considers moot?

Regardless of facts, it is perception that matters.  Not speaking
for anyone else, my perception of the practises in which you and
Kevin have seemingly engaged makes me personally wary and unwilling
to take anything you write at face value.  Little things, like
Kevin's post just now, and the multiplicity of 'I'm not with RC'
mail origins a couple of years ago, and the overall tenor of
your posts..

I try very hard to keep an open mind; when I committed to you to
get you a session at ApacheCon to talk about generic content
compression issue, I meant it -- but was overruled 4 to 1.
Despite my best efforts at open-mindedness, something about your
collective tactics and polemic keeps making me want to close my
mind against you.  And I suspect (but do not know) that others
have the same perception, which may have been the cause of that
4-1 vote.

Most people I take at face value -- but you seem to change positions
so much that I feel I cannot but suspect you of having a hidden
agenda.  Maybe you do not, and maybe you do -- and maybe it is
no more than trying to get RC's package into the Apache distribution
because of the marketing bulge that would give RC.  But.. maybe
it is more than that.  I cannot tell, and you have not made it
easy to tell, and I am not sure I would blindly accept it if you
did.

This is not technical, this is social and political.
