derek and all other devs still have commit access. no one has been
banned, removed, sanctioned or anything. derek said he
unsubscribed from the mailing lists, himself.

nothing stopping him from committing this himself.

i would hope developers could work, if not together, at least
tolerate each other. i understand some devels have had disagreements
for years now.

i'd hate to see anyone leave, but i also am not a fan of arguments in
every thread either. i ignore comments most times and stick to
the code.

imo i wouldnt call any discussions in the past years "toxic". a few
gripes, snarks or passive agressive comments from a few developers,

show me one software project that doesnt have conflicts between

if any of my mail has offended anyone, please read it with the most
gracious and open tone, i am not trying to be insulting.
