I could not agree more, Max.  Misunderstandings are indeed unfortunate.
Misrepresentations are something else entirely.

FWIW, I fully support your stance that your unilaterally-imposed
"disqualification" was unwarranted.  At the same time, it's not difficult to
understand Hans' consternation and reaction to the situation.  Doxygen is a

reject its inclusion on the basis that somebody did too much work.
