Doesn't change the fact that I stopped contributing to the project the
moment they started requiring me to jump through hoops to do so.

(However, In the interest of truth it was already bothering me that
the development was done mostly by means of a BTS that did not have an
email interface).

Henning Makholm     Science, by its nature, is an uncertain undertaking, and
                  offers plenty of opportunity for failure no matter how you

         fully reliable one is doing and thinking the same as everyone else.
