I'm sure some people enjoy to rant. Good show. Others prefer to make
patches. We've seen this lots of times. Unless someone can point to an
actual systemic problem with the process, or code base, there's no

making a pull request?" comment would be unhelpful. :-)

The thing about C4, we don't check that a patch doesn't break
regression tests before merging them. This is the contributor's job.
The rule about "must build and pass tests" allows anyone who disagrees
with the patch to revert it. Mistakes are welcome, that's how we


Ps. I still get a couple of test failures in the libzmq master. Anyone
