7 This is more of an assumption on your part. Personally, I don't care
8 if my mistakes are made in public or private -- I just don't need that
9 comfort zone you seek. As for micromanaging, we are talking about the
10 -core list being read-only, so I wouldn't worry about that.
12 Besides, I tend to think if a user does contact you (not on -core
13 since its read-only, but by mail) to provide input on something
14 you're working on or suggesting, then this would be a good thing.
