I'm sorry, I must not be remembering the message in which I demanded you do anything. Could you possibly send a link to the list archives pointing it out?

As I recall, I simply said that dynamic reconfiguration could be done via rereading the flat text configuration file, and that the developers chose not to do so then and choose not to do so now. Both of which are factually true. Perhaps the basis for your venomous and unnecessary personal attacks is what you read into my message that wasn't actually there?

I've been trying to get a message I posted to the developers list regarding a trivial extension of the password policy module to support microsecond granularity for authentication failures approved and delivered for two weeks with no luck. Why on earth would I spend the amount of time and effort it would take to implement flat text config file based dynamic reconfiguration when I can't even get engagement on what will likely be a five line diff? On top of which, you've already made it clear that you would not accept an implementation of dynamic reconfiguration from flat text configuration files even if it existed and functioned perfectly, so it would be an exercise in utter futility, even more so than this discussion.
