Many of your recent posts to the Subversion dev@ list have followed a
general pattern:

* off-topic
* hard to determine applicability to the SVN project
* fly-by deprecations of SVN

There is more here. But I think the basic summary is simply, "you're adding
a lot of noise, but zero value [to the list discussion]." I realize that
somewhere in there you are striving hard to bring information and experience
to the list. You definitely have a lot to give. However, it is blanketed in
a lot of rhetoric and unsubstantiated commentary about SVN. While I
absolutely welcome negative *constructive* commentary about SVN, I'm not
seeing anything particularly constructive about your responses. Mostly, it
is *vague* "brokenness" in SVN, rather than specifics.

If you can bring specific problems, then I welcome your particiation. But if
you are going to continue to bring off-topic discussions, and
non-constructive feedback, then please do not post to this list.

I am not the final arbiter of this list. In fact, I have no particular
powers. However, I do think/hope that I represent the general viewpoint: you
are adding noise, but little signal.

In review, I would ask that you refrain from posting to this list unless
you have particular, constructive, feedback for the Subversion project.
