For those who wouldn't get email@example.com mail, Tomáš has also requested
retirement from qa, in

So I'd like to know how you can even pretend to count four members when:
- one retired because other members of the team decided to do as they
- two has been kicked out for playing along just if they can also make
the rules (as soon as a rule was enacted that they didn't like they
decided to ignore it, even under request to either not do so or be
removed from QA);
- you decided to retire because I applied a warning I had sent in
advance (on April 30th).
Or maybe are you counting Sven who I haven't heard from in a year or
two, and whose autorepoman mail has stopped coming ... probably before
you ever became a developer?
Maybe I scream in private, but what you three (keeping Tomáš out of
this) are doing is crying in public because you're no longer allowed to
poop in the sandbox you should keep clean.
Do note that it was even your words:

Which is exactly what I'm going to do: I'm going to make sure that the
team is on the same page: policies has to be followed, or they need to
be changed. Which doesn't look like either of them (nor you I guess)
want to do. I'm pretty sure I didn't ask much to the team beside
actually following what the council decided.
Finally, I'd like to point out that neither my character nor my actions
have changed the slightest since the mail that Peper quoted — yet I was
elected as team leader; it looks like though people wanted me to scream
at anyone else beside them — too easy that way.
And the only two people in the team who bothered to cast a vote (Luca
and Christian), seems not to have an issue with me keeping this way.
So, this might hurt your feelings, but I'm not really sorry to see you
leave. As I said before I had been disappointed when people I had a high
esteem of decided that rules shouldn't apply to them.
