I would like to retract my comments above.

Basically I'm digging a hole for myself and dragging Nicola in with me. 
   Nicola - I want to apologize to you for that.  You and I still need 
to talk because knowingly or not your causing me grief and making life 
difficult for an entire project.  As for the above - I'm not interested 
in raising discussion on community@apache - I'm not even keen on the 
discussion here.  All I really want to do is to get you to recognize 
that your public call for the death of a particular Apache project has 
caused damage and unnecessary time from a number of different people who 
care about the project in question.  On the other-hand I can't stand 
here are say that you don't have the right to say what you think.

To everyone else - at the end of the day I know I'm simply using the 
question of mentor as leverage.  Bottom line - that makes me not a very 
good Apache citizen and that's creating a situation in which I feel very 
uncomfortable.  Maybe Ken's right and all I need is a good smack around 
the head.  Even so - I want to say sorry to everyone here - in 
particular - Noel - you don't need this more than anyone.
