communicating over text or email is always hard because it can be interpreted in way not intended.
yet it reads like you do want to resolve this with them.
hope you can. I like your point about needing to be a strong or aligned project for the time when strong adversaries come.
this. for open-source projects dealing directly with people’s money being strong and have a community of devs and contributors aligned is a must, not a nice to have. we’re living in a post-CSW era.
