If these things were really rarer then it was because everybody had
years of experience with Subversion.  We have switched to a new VCS
systems that people do not yet have years of experience with.  Thus

two of Flameeyes' patches in your list of nonsense commits even though
you previously thanked him for solving a longstanding issue.
