You've misunderstood the sense in which I call invoke a "short-term". I
mean that in term of having an upstream to accept patches. I've yet to
run into a porting project that loves carrying an accumulation of
patches that lack an upstream or upstream acceptance. When I speak of a
need to fork and suggest that the SFE patches should be reviewed for
acceptance by the new upstream, I can't see how that's a dig against
Others have read and responded to my remarks and understood them as
intended, and I see no reasonable basis for further claims that I "hate"
SFE and "continually" dismiss and deride it in any form. If you're
concerned that something I've said could be mistaken for a negative
remark about SFE, I'd happily respond to a question seeking
clarification, but I don't count being flamed on a public list as a
reasonable response, certainly not when you're posting after other
responses that have heard me in my intended register.
I hope and expect that you will withdraw your remarks for such reasons.
