Its not just whether I don't like what he says on his blog (I personally
find it amusing .. and don't care to go beyond that), but its about
whether he really believes what he says and thinks the ASF is nothing
but a pile of poo (to paraphrase his style of writing). Why in the world
doesn't he want to be part of that?

If you want a project to succeed in the ASF you have to be willing to
give up control, be willing to live with diversity (yes even if it has
poor spelling), and overall be tolerant of other people's interests and
needs. Hani doesn't appear to be able to do any of that to me.

I also encourage people to watch Hani's TSS interview. Quite
enlightening of what he thinks of lots of things.


Anyway, he's one guy. I won't pursue this thread further; this proposal
has much more interesting stuff to talk about independent of one Mr.
