Mario, I think you're taking this too personaly.

Your actions on this particular issue have been invasive and somewhat
rude, which made other people angry.

I suggest we now wait for a day or two, and other Savannah admins will
resume the conversation with the avrdude maintainers to clarify what
the requirements are.

The fact we technically can do things, as administrators, doesn't mean
we can do them morally.  We cannot add ourselves as project members
without the project admins consent, we cannot subscribe to private
mailing lists without the project admin consent, and we generally are
not in position to comment on project choices unless they directly
violate the hosting requirements.

You had a nice idea to raise the issue of non-compliance to the
avrdude maintainers, but in the process you want beyond your
administrator privileges.  So I don't think you should continue to
work on this issue.
