It was not I who has brought the topic up on this list again, and I
don't think that anything can be gained by prohibiting Emacs
developers that actually have had contact with the XEmacs package
system to comment on the claims of XEmacs developers on the Emacs
developer list.

So just stop bringing up your claims here, and I won't feel compelled
to report my experiences in reply.

Simple as that.  It is not like we don't have enough other stuff on
our hands.
