Is everyone happy now? Can't we just solve the problem in a more elegant
way instead of irritating each other and showing disrespect?

I've been working on ARM-list for several years, there is some trivial
issues, nothing is perfect, but I found it working quite well and is
well managed. Russell has invested a lot effort in making this happen
indeed in the past several years, and someone need to see this fact.
Let's have more considerations for him: what if you are forced to
change something you've devoted much in, and even with some difficult
and hard-to-tell reasons?

Well, I mean if there are really good reasons to move over to vger,
the vast majority of the ARM community would have already moved there,
there must be some values within the ARM-list.

It's OK there are some requirements to make this ML more open and
works more like other ML on vger, but this thread apparently, shows
a bad way to solve problems.

And I don't like the patch, it doesn't solve any problem. Leaving for
each subsystem maintainers to make the choice will be a better idea
to me.
