you start to sound like you believe yourself by this point.
After my vacation, I'll pull out the emails you wrote, where, even 
though it was a veto, you clearly specified to leave it in.
I will also pull out the email, where I offered to elaborate more, and 
you pretty much declined.
Then I will pull out the email where I offered to pull out the much 
debated Comet implementation, so that trunk can move forward.
And if you wish, I can pull out even more examples. Just let me know how 
much time and proof it needs to take before your willing to re-evaluate 
your accusatory statements.

you're having a control issue, and your manifesting it by wanting to get 
rid of trunk, even though several people have politely and respectfully 
asked for it to remain. Mainly the Geronimo folks who would want it in 
their distribution. Getting rid of trunk, simply means that Geronimo has 
one more obstacle to get around, sounds like it would benefit someone 
else, doesn't it?....

Besides annotations and comet, the changes in trunk are of a bug 
fix/feature improvement type, and discussing every minor detail would be 
equivalent to RTC. Currently we are using CTR, hence you get the option 
to review anything that has been done.

I've never ignored your emails, nor have I not answered anytime you 
asked for an explanation. Take the virtual loader for example, huge 
improvements to a component that wasn't really working, but was included 
in the main distribution. Simply because you "didn't like it" was your 
explanation, doesn't make it immensely useful for very large 
installation of Tomcat.

I'll be back next week for more community fun, Tomcat has always put the 
"fun" back into dys*fun*ctional :), it's an honor to participate
