This would be good. I think that clear rules are always fine. Also the very
important is to not concentrate all power in the hand of one person without
any control (for example in much smaller project like NewPascal I don't
have exclusive control). Some time ago I was involved in many parts of work
in FPC compiler (generics.collections, management operators other fixes for
compiler and new features in progress) but in the case of personal
conflict, project has no instance of appeal or regulations or any code of
conduct. So instead of coding I need to waste time to shows what happened.

It looks like David's fight with Goliath. Anyway the truth is important.

All is fine when someone has the same opinion like Michael Van Canneyt. The
style of communication with Michael is visible in this thread, when he know
he is not right he is just ignoring messages, but he is first to throw the
rock. He is using power - not arguments. No one can do anything because he
has full control on all infrastructure.

Admin, lead of project, programmer and foundation ruler in one person? Too
much power always corrupts.
