A nice thing about open source and the use of Git is that changes can be proposed and adopted quickly. Any proposal should be judged, not on whether it is perfect, but whether it makes an improvement. As a corollary, don’t assume that the current state is the ideal, but treat it as a platform for continuous improvements.

In this case, the phrase you objected to was removed before you made your comment.
