A reason for the failing of mediation is that you seem to have no
interest to work together with the people who have (not in a very nice
way) removed your commit rights. You have kept flaming on public lists
in the last few days, which is normally not a good way to get people to
calm down. 

What you seem to want is some sort of decision that forces other
developers to work together with you, not a mediation. Working together
is not only based on technical stuff, but has also a social level. Your
recent actions have shown that you do not understand about this, and I
have to admit that it's probably better for the d-i team if they don't
have to fight with you on a regular basis. The time and motivation lost
in flamewars is more valuable than anything a single developer could
