Ditto for this specific issue and in general. People forget that we are
doing all of this as a kindness for the community since most of us probably
don't benefit from another 3.4 release, so any negativity is at best
treated with indifference and at worst as de-motivating to any effort into
open source (I know for me I'm definitely no longer in the mood to spend my
free time on open source today if this is how people are going to treat my
hard, volunteer work).
