Well, if it was isolated maybe, but having constant bashing and patronizing of
frans over my every comment, and then being told don't bother anyway your
stuff will nto be included, and then this in addition, it is a bit much.

Not caunting the other very crass personal attacks they made on me while i was
in personal distress.

No, i am raising an alarm earlier, so people who care about powerpc will have
time to act, and will not stay believing all is fine, and end with a mess 8
month from now or such.

No, i want to help, i also want for the port to do well and work. When frans
first anounced that they had found another porter, and that everything would
be fine without me, i was as helpfull as i could, and now 4 weeks afterward, i
see the mess that resulted.

I want that either they admit their failure to the world at large, take their
responsabilities seriously and get the powerpc port going, or admit my
competence and accept my help.

There is no middle ground, and if neither of these three choices are made, ...
