I suggest you go back and read the Alex threads.  The reason no one 
wants to respond is they don't want to get into this exact kind of 
pissing match.  It is an extreme waste of time and almost none of the 
threads come to a conclusion, and most end in a rant about how the big 
bad committers are crushing his enthusiasm.  Alex has already burned 
out David Blevins and my self, and it looks like Jeremy is close to 
giving up on working with him.  After that I don't know who would be 
willing to work with him, and since he has burned a lot of bridges 
already I don't see him getting commit access anytime soon.
