Notice that i left almost if not all debian-boot involvement some time ago
because of that, and that the problems you mention where mostly caused by
Frans commenting on things i said on debian-kernel, and not really directed at
him, and he taked offense.

Notice also that i am still expecting excuses on how you threated me in april
last year, when i almost was brought to leave the project due to the abuse i
got at the time, but i really am not expecting them anymore. Ever since i have
questioned my involvement in debian, and after 8 years of participation, i
have to say that issues got worse and worse the last year since a few of you
guys used me as scapegoat to vent all their frustration on the delayed sarge

So, i don't expect anything better from you, or manoj, or jonas. I notice
thought that i have worked fine with Frans in extremadura, and haven't really
caused any kind of trouble to the debian-boot team you mention since some
month now.

I did raise a few technical issues that are of the responsability of the
debian-boot team to solve with regard to the kernel issue, but upto now
nothing has happened there, and i fear that with me left, they may simply be
forgotten, altough i hope someone else will take them over.
