You were not expected to think my response necessary.

This is true.

Nevertheless, in matters word choice or what have you, it would 
behoove you to remember that neither Anca individually nor the 
OpenSIPS development team collectively have any obligations whatsoever 
to you, the organisation by which you are employed, commercial 
customers for whom you do work, et cetera;  Anca's response was a 
deferential courtesy characteristic of the good grace of open-source 
developers when dealing with this type of imperiousness.

Absent commercial agreements to the contrary, nobody is concerned 
either with your "coworkers" nor your "internal planning," and it has 
zero imaginable correlation with their priorities or goals.  You are 
not entitled to request "status reports" as if you are a micro-manager 
coming around to check on your cubicle flock.
