I don't think it is wise to make any statements in this thread. All these bad and unjustified attacks against Lucanus Simonson and Fernando Cacciola, intermixed with short excuses and continued attacks. (The attacks come from Jose, not Bahrend, just to be clear here.)
OK, finally Luke lost his self-restraint. So what?
Bahrends response is understandable, but the "Please let that go, let's work together in the future." is probably inappropriate here, because the whole discussion was about that they can't be forced to work together. And Luke already gave good and understandable reasons why it is unattractive for him to merge his work with GGL.
But I admit that "..., let's work together in the future." can also just mean to continue to have fruitful discussion, without any plans to merge the resulting work. This is completely appropriate, of course.
I just want to point out my support for Luke, but not in the sense that I wouldn't also support Bahrend. (As long as this doesn't imply forcing Luke to merge his work with GGL.)
