They may be relevant when making comparisons (when prompted to do so by
one of the users, etc.), but not for announcements / "PR" messages. Feel
free to use fpc-other for that.

Nobody should use inappropriate languague in the mailing list, full stop.
I'm not aware of a 'FPC core developer' doing so but if this happens, I'll
send a moderation message as well - feel free to send me a private e-mail
about such cases if I miss them.

This question is not on-topic and no discussion should be held about it in
this list. If you persist on discussing it in one of the FPC mailing lists
(rather than waiting for the promised summary), use fpc-other.

As witnessed by all the contributions incorporated to the FPC source code,
it is certainly possible.

Yes, it is. Any open source project needs some kind of management,
otherwise it results in a disaster. Noone guarantees that each and every
contribution will be incorporated. As you certainly know, you are free to
fork the project (it's an open source) and try to manage your fork better.
But then it is not the original project any longer.

We are all working on FPC in our free time as a hobby. There are no SLAs
with guaranteed response times.

Please, make sure not to respond to this message in this mailing list, no
further reactions would belong here.
