Gotcha. I don't understand why, however. I lack write access to all
kinds of things, but I still send in patches. It sounds like you care
about powerpc support, so I find it hard to understand why you won't
send in patches.

So send in patches; how does whatever they are doing to you prevent
you from fixing things? (Or is it that you want to have write
I've seen you treat people pretty badly in the past, so I guess that I
tend to discount the seriousness of your complaint when you say that
they treat you as a "subhuman"; but that's neither here nor there.
I'm not so much asking *why* you don't want to submit patches, as much
as confirming that you don't want to. Why you don't want to is your
business, it doesn't really matter what the reason is.
The question is, if you aren't willing to help now (for whatever
reason) what is the right response from the rest of the project. It
seems to me that if you don't want to help anymore, that's sad, and we
should work to find someone else who will.
If that fails, and there is insufficient support for the port then,
when the time comes, it should be dropped. But we don't need to drop
it now just because you think it won't meet the target later.
