..but you're still fine with its content, right?

I also wonder who is really taking advantage of who here (your other mail)..

You're holding users as hostages to pressure vendors to fund your projects
and try to lure outside developers with the lovely perspective of doing
the hardest parts of said projects.

I don't have a have a problem with it personally as long as people accept
the competition.. but instead of working on _their_ projects they go around
screaming at everybody who does not want to spin inside the great process
designed by them..
