10 Hmm, interesting. Should "We're going to change..." be interpreted as a
11 fact and the voting itself is only a formal thing?
12 Because if that's the case, we can close -dev completely and just keep
13 -announcement and admire the decisions made by some people.

22 Let's go for censorship! Let's vote for gagging those users who don't
23 have any idea of development and those ex-devs who think they still have
24 anything to say.
26 And to give that comment a technical side:
27 - Do you think that any dev will regularly check for messages written by
28 users he barely knows and give his ok? Risking being moderated himself
29 if somebody else with magic foo thinks that the post was inappropriate?
30 - Who decides/defines when a post is a bad post?
31 - What if one dev thinks a post is inappropriate and rejects it, can
32 another dev still let it through?
33 - Why not just make -core o+r if you think that it gets leaked out
34 anyway and leave -dev as it is?
35 - When do we start with the moderation of -project?
37 Cheers.
