The very first post to the discussion list (http://www.xfree86.org/mailman/listinfo)
announces that Keith has been kicked out of the group of maintainers.
The next dozen posts also paint a pretty ugly picture, and there are plenty
of other direct attacks, very accusative, as bad as anything I've seen.
Wexelblat in particular seems to hate his guts. Reading that list, you'd
think Keith does not have many freinds. Maybe you want to send him a personal
note of support.
