Lighten up, Mark.

I'm describing things from *my* perspective.  Don't tell
me what my perspective is.  I'm also responding to the
question you posed in the very first message in this
thread, before additional information was revealed, in
light of that information.

And yes, it's 'obvious' to me, in the same way that if
someone said Gandhi created al-Qaeda it would be 'obviously'
incorrect.  When I referred to myself as a 'complete outsider,'
I meant with regard to this specific issue, not wrt the
ASF or incubator.  I *do* have a little experience with

If anyone considered altering the committer list, and it got
altered, there's nothing random about that.  And that appears

There will *always* be facts and relationships not
universally known.  And people are people, and will
forget things and have their own opinions about what's
relevant and needing of mention -- and what isn't.  The
trick is to make sure that the *critical* ones *are* known.
And that won't always happen.

Sorry, but it seemed to me from remarks like this:

that you felt you were being discriminated against.  If that's
not what you meant or how you feel, I apologise for
