The one that is the most morale impacting is not caring about the style
of a package that somebody else has been working on, and just using your
preferences nevertheless.

Example from 2 minutes ago: golang-dbus, where Tianon had been tracking
upstream commits directly until v2, and for v3 you just imported a tarball.

Since this is a team, we need to find what is best for the group as a
whole, not only for you.

In any case, GBP is more or less the de-facto standard nowadays, and
helps save a lot of time. I don't really see why you think it is a time
waster for you.
