    If he decides to come back after that I do expect that his emails follow our CoC and stay on topic for this mailing list. Any further violations will lead to a permanent ban.

Thanks, Lars, both for the ban and the explanation.  Sigh of relief from me.

    Of course the underlying intentions must be constructive anyway - which should be

    Do you think Roland's main intentions are destructive?

What is important is _not_ the intention, but the effect on the community.  And for me, Roland's "contributions" were destructive.  Roland looks at Qt through a lens of embedded safety/regulatory equipment.  I get that and do appreciate the perspective.  But he speaks in absolutes.

QML == Awful
Qt == Unstable

New members to the list get the wrong impression when Roland's extreme opinions aren't pushed back on.  You've hit a bad place when the choice is ignoring FUD vs. fighting a flame-war.  People that force that choice don't deserve to be here.
