I don’t think anyone didn’t want to accept the way this case should be handled!

It is sad, that the communication went awry like that. Very sad, in my opinion,
that it went in such a snappy fashion.


But okay, I guess next time we’d have to plan more carefully what should be
written in such Qt reviews and come to a consensus here on KDE-MAC before
responding there and stir up unnecessary discussions. Best might be channelling
replies through only ONE person, i.e. the one who brought in that patch, in this
case Jeremy?

Thanks, David, for your support and I hope Jeremy will get forward with this
patch despite the quietness around it at the moment.

Best regards,
