The reason why I ask for the council to take a position is not 
technical; it's about the way the thing has been handled. I have a good 
name, I post a package, he has a good name, he doesn't post a package; I 
offer to fix things and to see if we can meet in the middle, he takes 
the good name and *orders* me to change a quite gigantic work and 
undertake another gigantic work so in future my work won't clash with 
his. *This* is where I raise a question about CoC.

The technical question can be discussed in motu and/or devel list.

And no, it's not *mine* problem (or did you mean your=the both of you; 
in that case, no, it's not *our* problem). It will be Ubuntu users 
problem when all the other distros will have a /usr/bin/falcon running 
scripts (as they are having right now an open project request) while 
Ubuntu will have a /usr/bin/falcon managing packages. That's the only 
reason I am still here trying to sort out the technical aspect; for 
respect towards Ubuntu users. In fact, my first reaction was just that 
of requesting my package to be de-listed, but I understood this would 
cause quite a mess, which I prefer to avoid through some sort of negotiate.
