it’s truly pity, that things with Paul turned out so badly. He was/is one of the most productive core developers for a long time. Paul’s article had a little of unethical flavor and was clearly written out due to long-standing frustration with some subjective expectations which did not come true. His intentions were, however, meant for the good of the thing he cared about and for the benefit of the community. It’s truly a pity that core team has not resolved the issue to mutual satisfaction.
