I don't care whether commentary on this topic is in STATUS or on the 
mailing list (I for one put all of my commentary on this topic on the 
mailing list).

I do want to make sure that people who appear to disagree with the 
status quo take the opportunity to formalize that with a vote, because 
it is that vote that directly controls how things are done, not the 
megabytes of commentary.

Regarding your comment "But now we're seeing this stupid R-T-C hammer
being used to smack developers over the head."

Stas didn't follow the rules that the group chose, and I took exception 
because his action interfered with my own desires to carefully review 
anything within my grasp which is committed to the stable branch.  End 
of story.

[IMO he didn't follow the rules not because he was bad and needed to be 
smacked over the head but because he was not accustomed to how the 
stable branch was being handled and needed to be steered in the right 
direction.  I'm definitely in the Stas fan club and don't plan on trying 
to smack him over the head.  I also have faith that he is clever enough 
to realize that procedural comments on a commit (be they gripes about 
whitespace or missing information or otherwise) are not smacks on the 
head but instead attempts to steer somebody in the right direction.]
