Notice that if Stefan had told me that, instead of hiding it, i would
have asked Bastian, and it would have gone no further.
Notice also, that it was not even me who asked on #alioth, and that
things could have gotten much cleaner with transparency and
Finally, i just notice that the alioth admin team apparently saw no
problem in filing the full log of the time i removed jonas from svn
shortly before cebit 2006, which didn't lead to any consequence, and as
thus directly contributed to witch hunt against me, so, two weights, two

Notice how you transform this into me threatening to attach you in a
court, which is typical of how all this has gone. The most minor thing i

becomes the summit of evilness, while all that is done to me is ignored
But then, i know since we spoke at the end of Solution Linux, that
concience and honestity are not sentiments which you care all that much
This does change nothing. I ask that my svn and kernel commit access be
restored, that the DAM's decision to suspend me be lifted, and that the
Debian project tries to find a honest and fair solution to this mess
which has caused innumerable flamewars and angryness and loss of time
since over a year now.
