You had quite strong words for Frans, accusing him (and other d-i folk) of
breaking your daily builds.  They didn't do anything of the sort; *I* broke
the daily builds, because there was a libnewt soname bump and udebs needed
to be rebuilt against the new soname, which broke the daily builds until
libnewt0.52 was installed in the build env because this was before we had
support for udeb shlibs.  That didn't stop you from accusing Frans of first
breaking the build and then picking on you.

As discussed on IRC, yes, I believe the d-i repo admins have the authority
to remove the d-i commit rights of committers who have resigned, or
committers that they believe are abusive, or committers who have idled out,
and probably the authority to remove commit rights for other reasons I'm not
thinking of right now.

No, it's up to fjp to decide if he wants to say more than he already has;
though I think at the time I made that comment on IRC, he had already posted
a reply to this thread, which simply had not reached my inbox yet.
