Yes there was a ping and obviously at least wm4 himself thinks so, too.
Go ahead and tell me that wm4 replying to it a minute a minute later
has happened by chance and not because of my ping.

What is exactly what has happened. From my viewpoint at least. Obviously
wm4 and you don't think that not replying anymore leads to silent
approval - I do. This seems to be what we are talking about.

After wm4's first response, I answered with stating my motivation and
concerns about the alternatives that came to mind.
Then he was silent. This I would already call to be sorted out.
After my ping he basically repeated his statement and remained silent
again although I explicitly asked him for his suggestions this time.
This is what you call in the middle of discussion?

If we were actually sorting something out I would never have pushed
anything but that was just not the case. If that would have been the
case, don't you think there would already be a tremendous shitstorm
going down on me?

patch 2 and ongoing silence after my ping.
