Stop it Catalin. You're being utterly rediculous. You asked why I
hadn't merged my patch during the last merge window. So I told you -
just like I've been telling you by email and during our monthly calls
why I've not been merging it. You asked the question (again) so I

Utter rubbish. I'll say it again. You asked why I hadn't merged my
patch. So I told you - just like I've been telling you by email and
during our monthly calls why I've not been merging it. You asked the
question (again) so I told you why.

Oh for god sake. I think I've already stated very clearly what I want.
I see no reason to repeat myself yet again.
