Well, Angelo is quite right for posting in this ML because QA members
wants anything to be publicly visible. Angelo, I do agree with you. It
seems like everyone is forcing himself to find mistakes on Arfrevers
commits even the slightest one. Whilst I do agree that pointing the
mistakes is a good thing, however I am totally against targeting one
person just to satisfy our ego. So I you spot a commit mistake and
report it via the ML make sure you do it again when someone != Arfrever
do it in the future.
