Normally I would have slapped this email down for being unnecessarily
trollish, however if we s/emotions//g and get to the core of the issue then
I think we can have a productive discussion. Since I personally was not
involved in the decisions on the RPMs I will simply moderate the discussion.

Please everyone, let's keep the discussion civil and on point.
