Maybe, but then, i saw little by little the other powerpc porters leaving, and
when i had trouble following on it, i was left fully alone, and to quote
Frans: "We know sven will eventually fix it, so we don't care". And you
accused the porters of lazyness in the post-sarge release time, but weren't
interested in any plan to ease their work.
Also, you put all the blame on me, saying i am disruptive and hard to work
with, but you and Frans also had a high part in this whole mess, especially
Frans, who started somewhen last fall to take me as a scapegoat and stuff.
Just reread our exchanges, each time i said something, in which i was wrong
sometimes, but othertimes not, i got an almost immediate bashing reply from
As thus, i think that a project who has to kick out one of its member, because
it is unable to cope with someone who suggests and want to discuss novel ideas
to make things better (and i never did more than suggest and try to open
discussions, i never, despite the d-i team's accusations, force my ideas on
anybody or other such), is a project who has indeed a *very* big problem.
