Hi Björn, all,

Hi Michael, Christoph, designers and developers


However, it is a such a common issue, that it even has a name
"Parkinson's Law of Triviality" or "colour of the bikeshed":

So we should not be ashamed that it happens, only be prepared to handle
it well. For developers this means that you cant make everybody happy
and you should not dispair if not everybody loves your implementation
on first sight.

I agree with you that the design modification here is an example of lower priority.

But the way one of the main developer seems to disregard non-coding community members is independent from this question.

This is nearly the same position Oracle developers showed when handling proposals and requests by the rest of the community.

I can't stand this attitude any longer - sorry.

Best regards
