I'm trying to share my thoughts on the matter because I do think
they're relevant, and I care about Arch's development...I'm not here
to argue just for argument's sake. So if you want me to sit back and
shut up, I will, but It seems like a lot of people have selective
reading, and many conversations on the list are completely one-sided.
I don't speak up often, but when I do it's usually my goal to provide
a little balance where there is none. I have no secret agenda. If you
think eliminating votes as a side effect of this transition, or
performing a cleanup based on pkgstats prior to integrating the
database has nothing to do with this process, then so be it...

I agree that the "it's broken so don't change anything" attitude is
not constructive (nor is that my attitude), but an attitude of "it's
broken, so let's make changes just because it will be different" is no
better if those changes aren't an improvement.
