A compromise is when both sides give way a bit, so that we reach a point that
everyone can accept. I made a proposal, and there was no reply. There was no
proposal at all from the other side.

Also, i am not asking anything outwordly, not even anything that would cause
any disagrement. The only reason they are having for rejecting or ignoring
this is pride, or because they decided they wanted nothing to do with me,
which both i believe are not reasons to be proud of (well, at least in the
world i live).

I also forgot to mention another thing in the original mail i was going to say :

  5) The reason invoked for revoking my SVN rights was that i would hurt d-i
  in spite or anything of the sort. I find this reason insulting and
  defamatory, and without any even remote hint of me having acted such in the
  past 8 years of involvement in debian.
