Call me childish all you like, but please discuss this matter in public 
in the team we are both working together in.

So you suggest me to throw away the work of others.  I dislike that 
approach - which is *exactly* the reason we are having this dialogue:

You evidently are (or was) eager to work on that package, so I simply 
inform you that the way you work on it (which I feel is throwing away 
work of mine) makes me loose interest in it, and I therefore inform you 
that I've pulled out: do with that package as you please.

For the record, here's what I wrote last night (european time) on IRC:

Also for the record, generally if this team feels that my use of CDBS is 
hurtful, then just tell me, and I will a) move away those packages I 
care strongly about, b) remove myself as uploader for the rest, and c) 
leave the team.

Call me childish for not embracing short-form dh.  I will then call you 
all childish for not embracing CDBS.  I do prefer a more mature 
conversation though.
