Absolutely. I couldn't agree more.

Any previous comments in my post about the dev in question admitting
guilt should have been clarified more. I did say it was not a major
thing to be guilty of, and I really mean that. These things happen, and
a simple "oops, my bad, I'll fix that" is really all that I feel is
needed here. The great work the devs are doing overall is far, far more
important than any little slips (and even the odd major one) that may
creep in from time to time.

I really would like to be among the first to congratulate the whole LO
team on a job well done. I know my most seen thoughts on this list are
pointing out the bad, as that is where the room for improvement lies,
and I do try to be constructive, but that isn't enough. I should be just
as vocal about the good as the bad. And I do seriously believe the good
outweighs the bad.

A large congratulations to the whole LO team and the community here,
which does far more good than harm, despite the odd contentious thread.

Hi :)
I'd just like to extend my deepest regrets and apologies to the dev
who had worked on whatever it was that caused a breakage.  I'm sure
they felt horrendous when they realised there was a problem!  The
highly public thread must have been a nightmare!  For that i am
deeply sorry.

Our devs are great, fantastic even.  The recent statistic showing how
low the error-rate is proved it.  Working through coding must involve
some seriously intense focus and can't be easy!  Errors happen and
nothing is perfect, of course but that is inevitable and
unavoidable.  It is pretty awesome that this dev, and the others
manage to get the error-rate so incredibly low

This particular dev was doing really great work for a good cause and
for that we owe him or her a huge debt of gratitude.

Many, many thanks to all of them, and particularly to the one we have
made such a fuss about.  Without their amazing work we wouldn't be
here, arguing about relatively tiny issues.  Great job all!! :)))
Many regards from
Tom :)
