i dont insist on a new ML ATM but id like to get a clear reply from root if
you (plural) ignore a request not just silence

theres no lack of trust, just some disagreements on how to handle some
things like policy violations and svn repo hacking and some silly
miscommunications indeed like the ffmpeg-win32 or roundup at mphq

anyway dont take it too serious, i like to flame when in doubt about it
being appropriate to flame :)
and i guess we simply have different oppinions on what to do when
svn policy gets broken, my view here probably is pretty close to arpis
so its not surprissing that we end up fighting over it constantly :)

anyway ill write some private mail maybe if i dont forget until tomorrow
or maybe ill visit IRC once again after a few month dunno yet
