Parent article: KVM, QEMU, and kernel project management

There are a few things that I felt were one-sided in the article. Most prominently, in the closing note, you hint that the KVM maintainers could be replaced if they're being unreasonable is something that could happen to get the feature in. I feel this was uncalled for, it does serve as a good data point to note, but it might just widen the differences between the various developers and maintainers here. The KVM developers' stand is that nothing's wrong with the repository split and there are security concerns with exposing guest information to the host. One would expect virt developers to know more about virt deployments and security than non-virt developers, at least.

However, I might myself sound too acrimonious and judgemental, I do not wish to convey badness. We've had enough foul messages going back and forth already.

I reread the end of the article and could not detect any such hint. Quite to the contrary, Jon wrote that KVM maintainers will not be overriden.

You might want to take the possibility into account that you are overly sensitive concerning this topic. (I don't know who you are or how you are involved. I use neither KVM nor Qemu, so I'm not involved.)
