Sorry? You have said enough times that you ignore the buildbot and
"broken platforms" that i'm really happy you use it.

Yes it's difficult/impossible to test everywhere and buildbot is there
to help .. i wanted to add more platforms so breakage (easy to do) is
rapidly detected.

Honestly I was happy you did that mistake but I didn't brag about it or
blamed you personally.

Because honestly I have had my share of retaliation for breaking the
build and the habits but now the things I made stabilized a bit and I am
happy about it; and it's nice to see that I am not the only one who
makes errors and get bugged about it.

i guess now we're even, i did not count the number of insults i received
from you on irc or on mailing list recently..

dude in the patches i sent recently the impression i have is you talk
about something else just because it's me. You're not even saying it's
rejected you talk about "complete crap", "nothing to do with vlc", "fork
your own";
not only for me but also for sergey who spent time re-sending patches to
build with VC++. Yeah VC++ is perhaps crap and there are GPL issues to
be aware of but you don't seem to respect the time he spent on his work.

I don't maintain a list of what you did wrong but there are too in your
attitude things that I don't like and that other people in the project
don't like.

But I think it's not that a big deal. Yeah bad things happen, bad words
are written, but the project moves forward and it is always a pleasure
for me to meet other developers at VDD.
In fact I was eager to go to LA with you so we could meet in more
pleasing conditions than the internet and things would relax a bit but
it's a shame I could not go.

I am certainly not perfect and deserve blame but I will not let you
alone blame me with your condescending attitude.

I don't think any of us leaving the project is something good or even
needed and it's certainly not what I want.

Now that you opened the bag of snakes if other contributors want to tell
me that I suck I will read without arguing (too much. i'll try.)
