I have nothing against you having an opinion on what should be done and
nor do I shy of receiving adverse criticism on a public mailing list.

Also the following article [1],


keeps reminding me that I am the one who has breached the trust.  I
don't think I have breached anyone's trust.

I ported the ox-html.el and ox-odt.el exporters when no one else -
including Bastien or Carsten - were available to invest substantial time
to port the work.  Remember this was done with the sole intention of
off-loading some of the work of Nicolas Goaziou.  Remember the porting
was done when Ngz work was in alpha or late-alpha stage. 

(You seem to respond donning the hat of a community manager.)

Bastien has been consistently rubbing me on the wrong side for a *very
long* time.  Do you think Bastien resorting to rewriting of history
[2][3] is a proper etiquette?  There is a limit to how absurd a person
can behave.  What is wrong, if I request that my work be reverted, given
the circumstances?

By continuing to work on Org-mode, I am supporting Bastien which I don't
intend to.  I don't approve of what he is doing (in his role as a
maintainer) nor do I think that the generaly public should be coaxed in
to responding favorably to Bastien's call for donations (particularly
for impending Org-8.0 release.)
