Sven, I think it would be better to let the story rest in peace and to go on
and look forward instead looking backward. Nobody can change what happened,
but it will make many things easier for you, when you don't look back in
anger and always pointing everyone to what happened to you.

Of course, everyone else should give you a fair chance either. Kicking you
out of an IRC meeting is not fair when you haven't complained about the past
so far. I hope that the d-i team stops its childish behaviour and becoming
interested in serious work and cooperation again.

from the d-i team and it would be worthwhile for the port to get you back
doing serious work again. Both parties involved should concentrate on the
work to do and not on personal sympathy/antipathy. 
Let's up that everyone involved is professional enough to work together for
the sake of the PPC port!
