You vetoed some change in the code. I asked you to produce concrete
arguments for your veto. If you call that pressure, you're on the wrong

No. It's your veto and therefore the burden of evidence is on you. "General
quality of code" is the same kind of nonsense argument as "code churn." By
that criterion, we'd have never released 1.0.

Throwing diffs my way that you know damn well I can produce myself is just
avoiding the issue. You're obviously able to point out concrete problems in
other parts of the code, so I can't understand why that's so hard in the
case of log addressing. Maybe you see issues there that I missed, so
please, once again, take the time to point them out. You may even help the
author learn something.

Sure, it's a lot of work. So is writing this mail on a phone while lying in
hospital, but no-one else is likely to do it for me.

And once again you're making assumptions about what I do or don't know ...
and totally missing the point, which I hope I explained clearly enough
