Alfred, don't you realize that you are just lying and are only hostile to
me for personal reasons I don't even know?

Do you people know how much time I lately invested into the Hurd project?
I'm well aware that many of you are also doing this.  Nevertheless.  If
the community is not able to ``handle'' a ricochet like Alfred is, my
time is for me no longer worth to be wasted on this project.

For this reason:

I will stop any work on the Hurd from now on until a) Alfred is removed
from both the main Hurd project and the HurdExtras project or b) he
publically apologizes to me and others and the Hurd community finds a way
to convince me that the time I spent--and I will then spend again--is
considered valuable.

If someone wants me to be a mentor for the Google Summer of Code 2006,
you better hurry up to find a way out of this mess.

Sorry.  It's not how I expected things to turn.  Really.  But it's not
fun anymore.  Sorry.


P.S. I will continue maintaining the Hurd's mailing list, so that your
measures of communication will not be hampered.
