Removal? I stand firmly behind Michael. He's been doing awesome work and
I'm glad he accepted being in the MOTU Council.

I'm not saying that I'm happy about this particular upload, but throwing
him out of the project does not help with anything.

Why don't you raise the point about the MOTU Council election process
with the CC and TB, if it bothers you?

"Ruffled feathers" is euphemistic for what has happened here. It's
perfectly OK to be questioned about what happened in such an upload or a
follow-up mail to the Accepted upload. If such things happen again, it's
appropriate to talk to one of the governance bodies we have, but it's
not OK to be talked to in such a way.

Have a nice day,
