Do you write patches, or just say "This is terrible. Aorta do summing
about it."? [1] If you want something done, the best way is to do it.
Simply telling someone else what to do is not "participation" which
should be "encourage[d]", but is indeed likely to be whining.

Oh, and when you talk about it like this, you make everyone absolutely
sure that it really IS just whining.
