Had the same thought after that challenging day.
May résumé would be:
- You cannot satisfy all people (50 cent for phrasemongering I know)
- Our update process needs to be documented and proven before releasing 
major updates. (e.g. checking for php zip to interact with app store).
- People we call "trolls" do not reply after you like to talk about 
facts and not assumptions.
- We should not ignore heise because IMHO ownCloud should care about its 
image in germany IT scene.
- Make people aware of release cycles and project targets of ownCloud 
(so much different than mentioned BSD projects).

Good night.
