  • So Tony unsubscribed him for a week to cool down.

    I made two rude comments and got temp-banned, no problem, but Tony never told me about it!
    The conversation i posted is really everything.
    • Rightio...

      While there's been lots of back and forth on this subject, there's a few points that I've noted:

      • Tony could have unsubscribed from the list for a while until things got into a more sane state.
      • Tony could have unsubscribed sri and put the list directly into moderated mode (which is perfectly easy with sympa).
      • If tony is feeling the heat, feeling under pressure, not enjoying developing the code and has time constraints; he could give up maintainership to someone he trusts that will keep his intrests at heart and will keep the development turnover in a state that keeps the community happy.
      • Even if tony didn't want to stop on the maintainership, he could also give co-maintainter ship to someone he trusts.

      While I don't condone sri's actions, you need to stop blaming him for it all. From the way the mailing list had seemed over the last few months, there were lots more people who were getting frustrated and if it wasn't sri, it would have been someone else. All well and good, it seems like there's a good aspect from all this which is a flurry of work to refactor the internals of Class::DBI and abstract it into a sane interface, which was overdue to be honest.

      I want to take an opportunity to thank Tony for his hard work and vision with Class::DBI and for putting up with the barrage of questions, intrest and publicity which has put him into the spotlight. While this has been a set back for all, just before the list closed, there was a fantastic group of people really discussing about the best way forward and I hope that continues.
