The tone, if not the intention, of your posts is extremely insulting and condescending. Hagar

gives a lot of time to this project and he spends it in areas that he has expertise in.

Do you think every committer should learn how to program and fix code? Your unreasonable demand

of Hagar is the equivalent of that.

Hagar deserves an apology from you. This project needs people like him. Personally, if I was
committer, I would tell you where to stick it.
