They're both, to some degree, issues of looking at Apache from 10
kilometers in the sky, or looking at it very infrequently.  Which
describes most people pretty well because they are busy with their own
work, lives, projects, etc.

Those who are close enough to comment know about the project well enough
to distinguish between different subgroups.  They're observing from a
lot closer.

It's probable that the second group are the ones that matter, and if
they can see a difference, then there isn't really a problem.  It's just
something to keep in mind.
