That shows how things can be done and how shouldn't be done, it's not
casual that you are always involved in this kind of discussions, instead
of thinking all people is trying to "shoot the messenger", maybe you
should think about you acts here (I know it's difficult, specially when
discussions are done virtually and not in real world where you,
probably, would understand better that your way of demanding things and
putting conditions is not the way to go). Making constructive
suggestions instead of others that can be easily interpreted as whims is
the way to go.

You know what I exactly mean, don't try to change the topic to "GLEP
process is already documented" to hide you don't want to put anything of
your time to help others to get proper documentation prepared to show to
pms team. Of course, you have the right to do so as this is all
contribution work that we do it if we want and have time, but don't try
to hide it in this way.
