Hi Joe,

Aren't you a mentor for this project?

Two thing that I'd like to say. First, with "sand kicked" in your face, do you refer to my
mail, or to a followup by somebody else?

If it has to do with my mail: I know I raised a number of technical concerns. Which of them,
or what in my mail wasn't appropriate? Please point me to non-technical issues that I may
have touched, because my intention is not to hurt anyones feelings (and I'm sorry if this

Second, I don't agree with the "we all agreed" part. It is not true that "we all agreed".
There was a discussion in the past how to proceed. The discussion did not finish though ---
but put was stopped dead by a ASF representative (of a role unknown to me). See this thread:

The resolution was:$e9ebc710$bdc35530$

Bummer. IMO, the discussion was ended by force before it even started. Therefore I don't agree
that much with "we all agreed". 

How about revisiting the subject? 

You see, needs a powerful mirror system. For a number of technical reasons
I hopefully could explain. Wouldn't it be good to join forces? I certainly think so and I'll
be happy to support you.
