Not necessarily. It could be mine that's the bizarre take.  Although
some of what I said in previous messages were not necessarily my take,
just a "devils advocate" sort of thing.

It's not just the users, but other members of the dev team that might
have differing views as to what "the project" should be.  That sort of
thing happens quite often, otherwise Trinity wouldn't have forked from
KDE (obviously).

I don't disagree with that view.  It's the bugs I was talking about
initially, and users complaining about them.  You're talking about the
big picture or general overview of the project.  Maybe I picked up the
wrong end of the stick.

As am I.  I wouldn't even know where to start.  I'm glad that people
like writing software, all the way from little one-liner bash scripts
right up to full blown DEs and beyond.

That is another truism, of course.

I quite like it, but it's not a "must have".  I can easily see how
others would get annoyed by it.  Possibly even feel slightly ill viewing
