Supposing the other side's argument is correct is a standard
discussing technique.

I don't know. I've sent 800 patches in the last three months (patches,
not email comments), and you pick this one to reply to. Maybe because
you enjoy insulting people?

Why don't you ask Junio to let it go? If it's irrelevant, than it
doesn't matter if this patch is applied or not. You say it's
bike-shedding, that implies that Junio likes red, and I like blue, and
both are equally useless. So let's go for blue then.

Presumably Junio doesn't agree with you, he does truly think it should
be red, in fact, he doesn't think it's just a color, it's something
important, and I agree, and apparently other people in the mailing
list also agree, as most of them have voiced their opinion that red is
the color.

Now, do you have something of value to say which of the two options
should be, or are you just going to engage in double standards and
personal attacks?

If you truly think this is bikeshedding, at least be fair and complain
about that to the people that argue for red, not just the ones that
argue for blue.
