Hi Michael,

	More problem bodging going on in at-spi:

	I being to dispair of this - not because of the code quality, but
because of the lack of understanding and engagement from some Sun
hackers; it seems the commit rules for at-spi go a bit like this:

	if (Employee is Sun person) {

On my part, this is my fault, mostly down to my lack of understanding on how
things should be done. I most probably should have seeked agreement with
people before committing, but was somewhat unsure of who to contact because
Bill was out and the problem I fixed was becoming a blocker to the successful
testing and continued bug fixing of the JABG...

Person has no chance of committing anything, without stringent review, and if person contributes substantially has no chance of being a maintainer.

This, I think, is bad - I didn't even realise you had commited much of the original code until I was talking to you! Credit where credit is due, I say...

	This is just totally un-acceptable, I feel particularly agrieved having
written such a big chunk of code, and sitting impotently by as other
people commit stuff producing a progressively poorer result on top of

Perfectly understandable, I'd feel the same in you're position!

	Can people _at least_ post their at-spi patches to the list, so there
is at least some pretence of openness and review ?

Certainly will be doing this from now on :)

Sincere Apologies,
