These rules should had been going w/o saying, but sadly the true
colors look more like (on discussing repotags):

00:55 <    mmcgrath> | I'm just tired of playing politics with people who are trying to define what rules we play by even though they don't honor our rules.

00:55 <    mmcgrath> | We're aiming much larger then they are and we have a much different structure as a result.
