And so far (over 1200 message later) it's been nothing but a venue for
complaining and vote-taking on issues that are only slightly related
to writing software.

And once a vote is taken, the minority complains incessantly about not
getting their way.  Coming from APR and Subversion, I'm just not used
to this way of doing things, so I'd imagine I'm oversensitive.
