Becoming a TU means that you become a member in the developement team, a 
team in which we trust each other, respect each other decisions, use the 
same packaging standards, the same tools as developers etc.

If you are just going to ignore and say, screw Jan decisions, I'm going 
to upload it just because I can, you are not welcomed in the team.

i will take care of them.

have to work together to accomplish a goal.
