Reverting someone elses work is by far the greatest source of friction in OE. As such, these need to be handled carefully, preferable on technical grounds rather than personal ones.

Reverts may only be carried out with either

  1. Acks from two TSC members not associated with original change.
  2. An Ack from the original patch author.

This means you may revert your own mistakes.
