I would like to formally cancel my expulsion request.  This is based
upon the comments of the OCAML team, who feel that Sven is a valuable
contributor.  I felt my original request was valid after seeing how Sven
acted within the kernel and d-i teams (and on IRC, and on various
mailing lists such as -legal and -devel), but I was not aware of his
OCAML team membership.  I do not wish to negatively affect the OCAML
team, and offer my apologies to them if I have done so.

That said, if the OCAML folks had not stuck up for Sven, I feel the
expulsion request would have been valid; everywhere else, Sven's
behavior has been incredibly destructive.  At this point, I intend to go
through the process of having him removed from the kernel team.

Unfortunately, based upon some of Sven's responses[0] to my request, I
feel he still does not understand the reason why I'm taking such extreme
measures against him.  This is sad, but I've given up trying to explain
it to him.  I hope he continues to work with the OCAML team, but avoids
getting into "discussions" with other developers until he can learn to
control himself.
