Why the acid comments?
And what was the problem here? That one person misremembered the nameing 
scheme of branches and releases?
Do you think you can do it better?

People quite immediately stepped up to the plate and gave all the 
correct information anyone could ever ask for.

I don't bother much with your gripes with documentation and whatnot, but 
this comment seemed just so bad and misinformed that I just can't take 
it anymore.

Why don't you go and play with (and bother) the Linux people instead?
You're obviously not happy with anything, and want everything done some 
other way (I feel like you want it done some way you've seen something 
else done, and I'm guessing you're looking at Linux, or something 
equally chaotic.)
