So? If it's not a typo or trivial formatting fix, you send it out for
review. Administrative or not, you got it wrong, and you went ahead and
committed it even after I'd told you to wait until things had settled

Admit that you screwed up, and make sure it doesn't happen again. Stop
trying to defend the indefensible.

And, as per procedure, there was not consensus on it so you should not
have committed it.

Not purely administrative at all. For starters, you introduced a whole
load of todo notes into the main document, which we've deliberately not
been doing. Second, I'd already told you not to commit it until the
whole "what exactly is in EAPI 3" thing had been sorted out, which
still hasn't happened -- Portage and the Council are in disagreement,
and past experience strongly suggests that it isn't necessarily the
Council that's going to come out on top here...

Your point of view isn't relevant when it's wrong. You're supposed to
be working with other people here, not committing first and then
tidying up the mess later.

You could have achieved a high degree of confidence with very little
difficulty. Instead, this whole mess is spilling over and affecting
users, and wasting far too much of a lot of people's time for something
that should have been done without any mess or user impact.
