Because when you post to a broad-list such as general@, you are
communicating to all incubating podlings and many graduated (or sadly,
retired) podlings as well.  This is one very broad list where it's not
possible to be a hat-flipper; your opinions necessarily carry the weight
of a Director of the Foundation (until you hide out on a dev list ;-)

Nobody was demanding make-work, you were demanding fast-track graduation.
And then you flipped off the handle after someone suggested that the
project demonstrate all the IP notices in an 'example package' had been
correctly adjusted, relative to its new home.  That was all.  Nobody was
expecting svn to do anything that hasn't been asked of all other recent
podlings, and I hope they won't still.

Please don't rant.  Tweak if the process is wrong [for every podling
to become aware of] or ask for justified exceptions, as you just did.
