Im not on a war path, but I must admit I love to fight government and corporate bureaucracies -- remember that I'm living in the land of red tape. If in doubt, look at this Australian's humourous description: http://www.livhambrett.com/everything-i-know-about-germany-germans/what-i-know-about-germans/ (#80 and 81, both very true) ;) When I smell demands for an action that doesn't make sense, but simply serves bureaucratic pedantry, all alarm bells start ringing. Thus, demanding that a typo in a commit message must be corrected automatically triggers a NO in super-sized capital letters, bold and italics ;)
No need to worry, though. I'm still relaxed and appreciate Kunda's work :)
