First, you're suggesting Mans is not reasonable, that's not true.

A vote, as I've tried to explain numerous times before, will leave
half of the developers unhappy. I've said what it _would_ take for me
to reconcile this: Michael should fix things up with Mans. He is the
one that insulted Mans which lead to him almost leaving the project.
Michael refused. Thus, we've forked.

The fix is simple: Michael needs to make up such that Mans is willing
to work with him again. I don't see that happening anytime soon,
