Only if necessary.  I have never seen you like this before.

mixed words, no argument from me.  The 2.x to 3.x changes affected all 
platforms I am aware of, see the start of the thread.

Are you saying my understanding of metadata is wrong?  If so we can 
certainly discuss that in another thread.

I've seen this before, you are narrowing the available space you might 
be responsible for.

Doesn't work for me, Geert.

help me to understand what you think is and isn't gnc's responsibility.

You don't give a donder about reports, right?  They're just occasional drek.

It doesn't matter to you that someone took months getting a budget 
together and producing a report on that budget to satisfy their 
Trustees.  You thought it was a good idea to just move a whole bunch of 
stuff to someone else's computer leaving no trace of the work behind.

The thing that pisses me off is that you appear to be defending this 
harmful decision rather than apologizing.

I have never in all my years of work with gnc seen you behave like this 
before, Geert, it seems to me you are running backwards faster than your 
legs will work.
