Holy crap this is petty. Keep in mind that Archlinux still hosts
everything related to the TUs, and you are tarnishing ArchLinux's
image by continuing with this.

The simply fact is: the TU ByLaws say that things must be done a
certain way. EVERYONE knew of these bylaws when joining the group.
There is no excuse here. The rules say "do this", people are not doing
it, as such, the rules are being broken.

Now, here's the irony of the situation. The ByLaws allow self
modification by the same voting process. You're more then welcome to
start a vote to change the wording of some of this to side with you.
Beyond that, however, breaking the rules is still breaking the rules.
