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.
