Sure, no problem and I apologise, which leads me to: how would I know
you are subscribed? ;)

I did not say the contrary, but I will *not* work under pressure
from someone I do not work for. I only say Benjamin was inactive with
miBoot for a long time, because he does not use it personally anymore
and he is not paid by IBM to work on it. (His own words if I dig in
my private mails from 2 years ago...)

How would I put it? Lack of motivation, be considered as nothing,

No, I am not, I am stalled in NM by Christoph Berg.

Because there is no so-called "visible activity" of me on
mailing-lists, on Google, and on the BTS... I still fail to see why
I cannot be in the state "waiting for AM" which I would be satisfied
with if it was the case...

Oh, come on, I hope you will not ask me to send patches like a dog
following his master, as d-i people did with Sven... They are 149 d-i
members, why can it not be 150? Am I a monster who will destroy d-i
SVN repository on a whim?... Hell, no! :( I like Debian too much to
do that.

OK, thanks to put it that way, so I am awaiting an account to work
on miBoot support in Debian Installer.
