Poor committer, it has to be one and you're the unlucky one.

Anyway I second Carten remarks, a such change should be tracked at least
and eventually shared to upstream before merging it.

I am not in position to say what should be done, but just proposing a
workflow for smooth cooperation upstream and downstream side, and avoid
confusion  like this 700k LOC "cleanup".

So let me share a document that explain how to cooperate with upstream
projects :


But I think the issue is more related to our current governance model, some
strategies regarding tizen.org codebase are not visible to all, so It's not
easy to predict what is on roadmaps.

Maybe we should use more the bugtracker and refer to it in commit message,
that way discussion could happen before it is merged, and it will be
benefit for all.
