I've said things because I was angry. Please forgive me for that.

I certainly won't ignore you, otherwise I wouldn't participate in the
discussion and wouldn't try to make proposals that suit everybody.

I also don't want to change the working process, although I'm interested
in getting back my author/editor status.

Thus I suggest the following:
- I'll refrain from direct commits in the future, instead I'll open bug
  reports with patchs
- you put me back in the Uploaders, and you accept me as an editor that
  can apply patches from the BTS. I won't apply them before the bug is at
  least 2 weeks old unless you explicitely voted in favor of the patch (in
  the bug log).

Is that OK?

Please don't do so.

Be sure that I respect all the work you did. Please also respect mine even
if it dates back to a long time ago.
