It is publicly archived in debian-boot, go look for it.

I don't have patches yet. I need to invest time and effort to create them,
just so they can be ignored ? Would you do this in those conditions ?

The question is : Did frans have a ethic reason to remove my commit access, or
did he do it only out of spit to get ride of me ? I have seen many argue that
since i resigned from being 'the d-i powerpc porter' it was ok for him to
remove those commit rights, but i would like to ask any reader, if deep within
themselves they think it is ethic, and serves the debian project, and was not
done just to hurt me ?

Nope, frans did, and others with him. They know who they are. Anyone reading
the mailing list archive with care will know too.
