my view is that ivan is being unreasonable (surprise surprise).
most of the recent discussion happened on discord
(https://discord.com/channels/637429340573007873/637430023682261012), so
you'll need to read that to get an unbiased impression.

in a nutshell, though, i think ivan's initial message is revealing
enough - for example, he plainly admits that his documentation doesn't
match the code. that's an automatic -1, and a yellow card for attitude.

one can always find a suitable definition to devalue some particular
kind of work.

in this case, you personally instructed the maintainer to do only
minimal maintenance work (which he does an excellent job at). he has
repeatedly made clear that he has exactly *zero* interest in the
strategic direction of qbs, and is letting "the community" duke it out
among itself, exactly as you wished. he provides no guidance whatsoever,
but reserves the right to cut short discussions he finds boring (or
something). the -2 is an override on that institutionalized
