I'm really curious to know who asks the previous merger before starting 
the work on a package; the new sponsorship process allows people to know 
who are working on what, which simplify the coordination between 
developers to not duplicate the work. Anyway multiple times I've seen 
someone doing merges I've previously done ... without asking, so I don't 
really understand this comment.

I'm not really sure what you say it's true, I've worked with a great 
number of MOTUs (check sponsors comments) and I alwais try to cooperate 
with other team members in everything I do; I guess you've based your 
comments on the fact sometimes I don't ask the previous merger if I can 
work on something, calling it no teamwork.

as I said in my (and sponsors) previous comments, a lot of things have 
changed since that time.
