Hello Eric,

what follows is about relationships, not about substance.

I am the project director. In the past, I have made a substantial code contribution to the project. Dimitry is a key developer, with a big contribution to the project. Chris is the project manager, with a big contribution to the project. You are a packager. You have contributed no code and close to no other work.

You are not in the position to write emails that bind people to something unless they protest. Basically, you are acting as if you were a manager, which you are not.

All that you write is non-binding unless I, Dimitry and Chris agree. That is very simple. Please, keep this in mind. Please, when you make a proposal, wait for an agreement of the team. I do not want to read again from you that the team has to do something unless we protest. That is really inappropriate.

Best regards,
Dan
