This seems to be exacerbated by the fact that both of you are
convinced that the other can't get along.  So it becomes a
self-fulfilling prophecy: "13:17 <mru> it's not about who is root,
it's about not giving in to michael".
I tried to call attila twice and he replied by SMS that he has no time
until the next weekend to talk

Ive met with ramiro in person and tried to convince him to enable his
fate & autobuild servers again

Ive tried to find people to take over root in case we vote, i have 2 people
who volunteer and i would volunteer too and i belive theres also vladimir
who volunteered previously

I loged on to IRC as many have requested since years

I talked with several people on the signature list and found out that they
didnt know all that precissely if this was a fork, a takeover, or something else
and some apparently didnt know about the mans in, kick me out / strip my title

And iam sure ive forgotten many things

Now let me politely ask what did your side do to resolve this?
ive not yet recived a single phone call from you, or diego, or mans or benjamin
