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.
