Hi, Sebastian

I use private communication when I feel it is appropriate. There is no 
way for me to know when you or Sam place comments
on a PR, so that communication might as well be private. In the context 
of GSOC, it might have been appropriate to mention
this in a public or private email to Utkarsh and myself.

Since you are helping as mentor for this project, I am particularly 
surprised you did not inform me of your comment.

I agree that it is not good practice to fill the lists with email. 
However, since the various flaps concerning the Oversight Board, it is very
hard to find a discussion in IAEP that has any connection to education. 
I am sure you also are getting multiple emails from Dave Crossland - 
often I get as many as four copies.
