Notice that the abuse included :
An last a personal message to Frans, remember when we where in
Extremadura, we had a good time, and we worked side by side. I
seriously lament that it all degenerated like it did. I certainly have
my part of responsability in this, but i passed though times, as you
know. Let's put pride and arrogance and remembrance of past hurts
aside, and let's again work on d-i all together, as it should be.
And that it was you who twice asked for my expulsion from Debian.
It is really sad that you could not grow up and stopd this childish
persecution of me, and that when i proposed that we meet at FOSDEM, you
chose to ask for my expulsion instead.
Imagine what we could all have achieved in all this time if you had not
rejected all the conciliation proposal i sent your way,
Sad to see you go, and sad that debian failed in mediating this in a way
which allowed us both to have fun. Let this be a lection to the future,
of the hurt that pride can cause to all involved and bystanders.
