Power-hungry ? I've always seen Benjamin publically reviewing
your patches (like anyone else's) and pointing out the problems.
This is not a power abuse.
Revoking commit access from a free software project repository
w/out even discussing or voting about it is, IMHO.

I'm very grateful to you for starting the project and funding most
of the work so far. I'm also grateful for all the infrastructure you're
maintaining and the publicity you give to the project.

My only problem with you is the difficulties you have to work
in team.
The power of free software is in its being publically reviewable.
I've seen you so many times refusing to even _think_ 
you did something wrong that hurts.
>From a practical point of view too: I've been fixing your bugs w/out
getting any recognition but rather further accusations about _me_
breaking things while all I was doing was fix _your_ bugs (as you didn't
want to admit they were).

Would you ? It's your project, up to you what you want to make of it....

I know you like coding and couldn't for long time being busy with
fundraising and paperwork and stuff. So what about playing "hacker"
now rather than "maintainer" ?

The way I see it maintainance is a boring task, give it to someone
else and focus on the fast and furious development. You could get
your things done and still be safe that nothing will break cause
a maintainer will help you / force you not to break things.

Really, think about it.

I'd personally love to have you still in the team.
Hopefully this can be sorted out with some time.
