That is still setting a (partial, angled) framing of the situation (as
Andreas was doing, to some extent).
What still worries me is that said frictions are still there after a
lot of years and weren't solved, and honestly I don't buy it is a
constellation of personal issues, rather than a misunderstanding on
how effectively implement the shared goals we all should have.
I am sorry you do not find this helpful, but being aware of the true
history of the project (especially at a time when there are voices
trying to reframe history) is very important and refusing to do so
may lead to incorrect assumptions and the acceptance of untrue framing.
I didn't say I found it useless, I said it wouldn't really still help
with moving the general balance of the discussion towards a positive
outcome, which was the main objections to Andreas' mails.
By entering into a dialogue. By hearing and evolving compromises with
other members through selecting positive elements of their
I'd generally agree, but what I can read from the thread is that some
discussions and objections are less likely to be acknowledged and
recognized, and taken as a basis to work on a positive compromise,
mostly because that is not coming from a long-time contributor. That's
not the case for Andreas, who you are confirming he is akin to the
Foundation since a lot of time.
How should members voice their concerns when they see entryists
harming the project and old unsettled grudges being repeatedly raised
regardless of how they are answered?
Let's start by acknowledging that if there are objections and they are
even consistently confirmed from long relationships and from short
ones, possibly something to discuss is there.
