Your ideas of hindering people contributing is a non-sense i've already told
you. There is no benefit in this for anyone.
We have never discussed about your adoption of phpgroupware, so i don't see why
you felt free to adopt it.
I've already told you, and i'm writing it publically, that an infrastructure to
cooperate is up in place and i've already told you i would have let you
contribute beside your almost intent to hijack. I wrote it publically in
_many_ ways i wanted people to help me, but the only answares i got was to take
over the packges (and many fake intent to contribute). This really make me sick.

I would let people apply their patch to the cvs directly being able to catch
diffs and reviewing work and seeing people really contribute.

You still do not understand what is being busy might mean (apart the fact that
you patch didn't provide a real solution to the bug).

I don't know how to demonstrate any more that your opinon about me are faulty.
I supposed my self to be the last person who would not let people work with me.

I'm still here saying that i'll be happy to cooperate and let you in, but i'm
wandering if i'm doing the right thing.
