This forum is technical, not political!

Technical decisions might easily have political consequences, you cannot just 
separate these ones.

You are turning it backward.

This proposal is 100% political and 0% technical.

The current patches are nice. So I praise the very positive contributors implementing it with clever avoidance of cleaving cancel culture custom gender inclusive grammar. I would not have been that clever.

I just let you know I have seen this live a year ago when cancel culture advocates infiltrated the board of the French non-profit ISP organization of which I am a member, and managed to get approval for an inclusive rewrite of the association's statutes, with a significant loss of legibility, and clearly for crassly political reasons.

This is the head reason I react so violently and remains very vigilant.

This is what is happening here. Now they just ask for mundane changes and will probably accept the patch. They will come again and ask for inclusive grammar, then come again and ask for removal of anything that is even remotely related to slavery (Example: master-slave database replication), racial discrimination (please remove blacklist and replace by exclusion-list), sexual assault or anything even remotely related. They will not give-up until everything is expunged of every trace of anything until total destruction or what's left is a bland ghostwith nothing left of history and everyone has fought each-other.

Then they will vanish and destroy other community, other history.
