Huh.. Reconciliation you say?
So it is board, who refused to meet with you in order to lower a
tension levels and find a compromise?

I haven't moved? But who discussed these 'Terms of Reference' with you and then
brought that topic to board first and then to community?
What else you want from me? Join the labor movement to protect your
rights against so-called 'noobs'
and other nerds who not interested in even discussing these terms,
because they think its pointless?

Right. But you forgetting one thing: compromise requires movement from
both sides.
But you prefer to stay and wait, and keep  vocalizing same things over
and over.
Good, then please, don't blame anyone that people prefer to keep
moving, leaving you behind.

It will happen each time, when you will be sitting at home , minding
your own business,
while people around expecting you to move forward, or at least pay
attention to their needs.
But instead you putting a 'noob' label on everyone, and keep sitting,
marking yourself as the only one
who deserves to decide in what direction and in what way Squeak should evolve.
Or maybe it is board members, who did as much as they can to make sure
that none of your ideas is heard
and understood by community _before_ changing the development process?

Again, this bullshit about Andreas.
Please, let the rest from your fantasies.

And then they will come to your house and ask you to let them in! Run
before too late.

Good and keep stick with that.

The answer will be no as long as you keep offending people who helped
you in the past and
tried to not let your ideas to be forgotten and get killed.
