It appears that Ted and I have teed Andrey off a little and he's now
taken his ball and gone home.
This prompts a wider discussion:
If someone proposes something like Andrey did which breaks strict RFC
compliance, or alternatively gives someone the ability to potentially
damage their system as per bug 1062, do we need to vote on it?
As few stepped in to the discussion spawned in either bug it struck me
that the approach I took (reinforced by Ted, and gently disagreed with
by Phil) was correct. Andrey's reaction has made me reflect on this,
however the outcome of this reflection is that although I may have
worded things differently I would have kept the same stance regardless.
Is there a formal process of some sort that we should be adopting, or
should we stick with the way we do already?
