On the other hand, it's rather hard for me to defend against a private NAK.
A private NAK against a company's developer's OK
Where is the difference private and company? I thought that it
doesn't matter who and what a developer is, and where she/he comes
That's not what private means in this case. A private nak is one made
in a private email, so that the list - and the submitter - can't see the
rationale. It is problematic because it doesn't really allow the other
party to address the objection.

(No big deal - Christoph has since responded in public.)

Sorry, but AFAIK the NAK by Christoph that I meant was written in a public e-mail with full context to the LSM mailing list some weeks ago around the end of June (23 June 2010?!) and I thought Kees meant this NAK. :D

But thanks for trying to clearify the case.

Sorry Kees, if you indeed meant with private NAK a NAK made in a private e-mail.

Have fun
