My  apologies  for  the  inaccuracies, Denis.  I  have  been
following  this  WordPress-related  project and  was  merely
using  its memory to support exemplify cases of  controversy
--  those that stir the community up. If I recall correctly,
everything  was settled at the end and everyone was pleased.

In  general,  I  think  that any shakeup  in  any  community
(either  developer  community or users community)  paints  a
grim picture that makes a project's vocation seem uncertain.
In  accordance,  people choose software which  they  believe
will  have a long 'support rope'. That, for example, is  the
reason  for damaged reputation among the Debian team,  which
lost valued members and leaders. Character (or friction) was
a main drive, as opposed to technical issues [1].

Best wishes,


[1]  Setting  aside the cracked servers, one due to a  local
privilege  escalation vulnerability and the other was a Wiki
flaw that has nothing to do with the core of Debian.
