I'd like not to quote me out of context like that, especially not when
cross posting to other lists; for the record, here is what I said:

: Some people are more important to the project than others.  People
: who are already contributing to important projects might get faster
: processing that those who «only» maintain a few packages.

: I don't think that's too insensible, projects like debian-cd, d-i
: and such are critical to getting out a new release, most new
: packages aren't.

Why do you think you have pissed him off?  You might obviously had
with this email, though I am not here to talk for anybody except
myself.  Also, note that he processes people once in a while -- one
can argue about the swiftness, but people are actually getting through
the system.

That's right, I only waited a few months for my account.
