I am sorry but not everyone lives in the American timing zone. So to
"hear _now_ is too strong." I think the only reason I see to reject
Matthias-Christian is:

1. He did not answer to my 10+ email.
2. He does not want to write commitments
3. He does not want to write specification
4. He continues to not answer to emails

Which means to ask question does NetBSD -really- wants to take this
guy, who does not want to communicated with anyone? And does not even
want to wrte 2 single lines in a email?

Also, Klaus, where did Matthias-Christian confirmed this? Why do I
know everything the last one?
