We maintainers have been disappointed by Marks harsh tone which do not
meet the project's communication standards, but also by your apparent
lack of will to reply constructively to legitimate criticism.

This is the next in a series of incidents.  The incidents are okay--we
we all make mistakes and that's how we learn--but we interpreted your
responses all too often as dismissive and defensive, rather than
understanding and forward-looking.  This has been causing unnecessary
friction and stress, and is not how we envision peaceful collaboration.

I'm sorry to say your commit privileges have been temporarily
suspended.  After one month, you are invited to get in touch with the
maintainers collective and discuss next steps.

You have done terrific work in Guix in the short time you've been
around: from the POWER9 port, to the many security fixes,
to tracking and reporting issues, and suggesting improvements to the
tools.  I hope you'll eventually rejoin to collaborate in the peaceful
and empathetic fashion that this project encourages.

Marius (on behalf of the maintainers collective)
