I'm really hesitant to jump in here, but I think it's warranted. As a (somewhat) impartial observer, it appears to me that this discussion has gotten a bit out of hand.

I know both of you guys personally, and pretty well. I know you both have the interests of the Subversion community at heart, and are both trying to make things better. I appreciate that, and I'm pretty sure everybody else here does too. I also know you both can have pretty strong views on what is Right, but that neither of you would intentionally give offense especially over something as trivial as a navigation bar.

Let's just accept the fact that stuff happens, both parties have good intentions, and then move on. If we're interested in creating a better community, let's do it, but please just give the other fellow the benefit of the doubt. You both have a lot of respect in the here; don't drag yourselves, and the other guy, through the mud over something that relatively trivial.

Thanks,
-Hyrum
