Yes, the bits I paraphrased above in quotes were from IRC, and I have
no problem saying so. What I don't want to do is to quote precisely
what was said or provide the identity of the person making those
statements on a public mailing list (certainly not without permission.)

No, you are just totally wrong there. It was ALREADY in private
*constructive* email between Andrew and myself at the time the comments
were made, with Andrew trying to find a solution to allow review of the
code to take place.

Now, you can carry on blaming me for the android situation in your own
world of lies, or you can wake up to reality and find out some reliable
facts from someone like Andrew Morton before continuing to assign blame
and malace. Which will it be?
