Maybe I didn't understood your first misunderstanding?

I understood your answer from your first reply. The debate just moved to
why you are so angry and me trying to explain why we asked. Don't get me
wrong, I'm not trying to get any further information about the goal of the
project since a while now.

Again, I have my answer. Though, I don't get why you are so outraged for…

That's certainly true for the "independent" version of the project, that
was not so obvious when tied with another project.

(Don't try to tell me again that's where it's officially distributed, it's
