If we avoid confrontation and airing these issues publicly, how will
we avoid them moving forward?
I'd hate to see the same cycle repeating every few versions as it has
done for the past 9 years, where HLT and similar customers run local
versions of code, thinking that they're running publicly available
versions and that others have broken the stuff they contributed, and
then complaining about it and pointing the finger at the last RM
(which in this case happens to be me).
A better model is to contribute stuff in such a way that everyone can
use it, not to silo stuff behind custom templates so that it only
works if you're running non-contributed templates, and to constantly
keep in sync with the community's latest version releases. Anyway,
I've said it better in the other acq thread.
