Let's be clear -- zian's just playing the social game here, saying what he needs to say for plausible deniability. He never had any intention of sharing anything with me. You don't completely change your mind from "yeah, I'll wait on that; anyone else?" to "sure, here's everything!" in 14 minutes.
I've been raised to interpret if someone says it can't be done like I don't know how to do it, maybe you do?
That's a fair perspective, and probably applicable to a vast majority of people. Me? I've been raised to say what I mean and mean what I say. When they're in the wrong position, sometimes, there's nothing you can do to overcome a difficult personality. Truly, it was out of my hands, and we'll forever remain at this standstill as long as zian's with us.
I Don't like the way things are going.
Really hope you reconsider your ultimatum.
Alas, there's no reason to do so. Even if I were to completely disregard the disrespect, zian will continue to do everything in his power to stand in the way of progress. If I can't make the progress I want to make, there's no reason for me to be here.

I'm afraid I can't agree to such an arrangement.
Pako and I are the lead developers on this project, and the two of us need complete, unfettered access to take it where it needs to go -- period. We can't have people who don't know what they're doing standing in our way, whether that's zian or whoever would emerge the victor of this hypothetical poll. Democracy is great and all, but that a small number of people think <person x> is really, really cool isn't a good reason for that person to be in charge.
I do network security and system administration for a living in a leadership role. This is my wheelhouse. If the community wants this project to move forward, I am the way forward. There's been a lot of silence in this thread from my fellow developers, and I completely understand that -- nobody wants to get involved in a street fight -- but time's ticking on this one. zian clearly has no intention of doing what's best for the project on his own, so if there's anyone out there who wants to see the rapid rate of progress we've reached under my leadership continue, now's the time to speak up before it's too late.
