Another day. Another compliant from me about running a project at Eclipse.org. This time it wound up in the jgit-dev mailing list archives, as replies to a thread that I think started from my blog post on the tragedy of Eclipse.
Instead of reposting the whole thing, I'll just point to my two messages in context:
why do I need to spend my time on this crap?
why is the new file header what it is?
