I have done so numerous time, but it was always rejected.

Well, the problem is more complicated than you think. There are many issues at
hand here, the first being that i have a right to have svn access, because of
the work i do on d-i and the powerpc port, because there is no single reason
why i should not have access from a technical point of view, and because the
d-i leadership has failed to find another active leade powerpc porter.

Then, the svn commit access is the symbol of their rejection of me.

And finally, you are being slanderous, in claiming that i am not honestly
making an effort, i don't know, i have always been open, blunt and honest, and
all of a sudden there is folk who show up, and claim i do stuff as strategy,
or i have hidden agendas, or whatever else. I strongly resent that accusation
of dishonesty.

But then, having frans take every oportunity to parade his power, and bash me
on the slightest of issues is ok ? 

And somehow, i have some trouble with this, saying i don't want to address the
underlying teamwork. Have you read : 


or joeyh's reply to the support page ? 

Frankly, if you didn't know about the issue, and if you came upon it and
looked at the actual facts, would you honestly still have the same discourse ? 

And no, team work doesn't mean you will never contradict the team leaders or
your fellow team members.
