Hi Paul,

I feel bad, very bad. That being said, I try to be as objective and friendly 
as possible.

On 2010/11/25 you wrote[1] , that you'd like to start hacking on GIT and test 
it out on couchdb. Three days later I responded[2] to you and on the list, 
that I'd strongly propose to evaluate Gerrit before any time is wasted hacking 
together some home grown scripts. I also offered my help.

Nevertheless you did not care to answer me or give any further hint that you'd 
indeed start hacking.

The only indication that you indeed might have worked on something were your 
comments in the jira issues. It was my failure that I did not watch them. 
However you also did not care to assigne any of these issues to you.

Could we please try to start over again and make a concept in an open process? 
I believe you're wasting your time. Even worse we might end up with your hand-
wired GIT setup while IMHO an almost perfect solution is turn-key ready.

I hope you can understand my dissapointment and won't take this personal.
