Is no one capable of discussing the tension between user–feature-requests and maintainer–time-priorities with any degree of nuance or granularity?

I see nothing except 'YoU jERks hAte YoUr UseRs' and 'oH yOu exPecT mE tO DroP eVerYthiNG and CaTEr to your WHiMs gR' (both actual quotes). I'd rather mute the whole discussion than hear that pointless posturing on repeat. Obviously developers and users are collaborators in the FOSS models, how bout we look at the details rather than generalize?


@n8 Unfortunately, as soon as someone says both sides have a point, there's not much more to discuss.
