I soon shall, then, but no - your message is *not* clear.  It sounds
like you are covering something up or not speaking forthrightly and,
in my experience, when it becomes really important, those are unlikely
courses for you to take.   So I am faced with this apparent
contradiction between what I believe to be your very honorable values
and your very dishonorable actions.

Can you explain to me briefly why it should not concern you?  It
relates to your nominal responsibilities as the CTO of Red Hat, and
in awkward (hopefully less important) ways, to your past actions,
during our past associations.

It genuinely seems to me that helping me should be a no-brainer for
you, for at the very least, the reason that the technology I have
offered you is (easy for most any engineer to determine) very useful
to Red Hat's advertised business goals.

In that context, you seem *very much* to "wish me ill".
