I don't see how that is, you created it, you even agreed to most of the 
initial Comet interface changes, even before trunk was created.
After that, you through in a bunch of vetoes based on your personal 
preference of an API, even though you already agreed. I would say, those 
vetoes were noted, but invalid, they didn't have a technical 
explanations. Vetoes are a pretty serious thing, but you throw 'em out 
often without an explanation.
After that you withdrew your proposal, and withdrew your vetoes as well. 
So at that point, trunk would be official.

you've been used to getting your way, all the time, you have a very hard 
to functioning when you don't get your way, you throw tantrums, threats 
and all kinds of accusations around you instead of working towards a 
This isn't a one-man show, never has been. It's give an take. I think a 
lot of people, including me, have disagreed with things you've done, 
specially the way you abuse users providing feedback on bugzilla, but we 
all go along for the sake of the project and the community.

I was more than willing to continue the discussion around the API, but 
you ignored that and you jumped the gun and started another sandbox 
project instead. That was your call again.
