Yes i had this quite clear, and there is a reason for this comment which
i will elaborate in a moment.

Sure back in the begining of hdw when i tried to get involved hdw was a
lot like rock linux, anywasy i tried to start making very little
contributions to hdw but of course you were rejecting every single
incoming feedback and /or patch sent by myself, which made me loose my
faith and motivation with the project itself.

Yes perhaps you are right.

Now here comes my explanation of what happened and why:

The day that came over into the chan was indeed the day i had decided to
loose all contact with the project as i was really pissed off by the
project management attitude.
I know that what i said was wrong and i do apologize for it, i screwed
it up and i guess there is no way to go back and fix it, so all i can
say is I'm sorry and that i didn't ment what i said, i was just to
blinded by anger when that happened.
I feel a lot of appreciation for you and the other Frank, and i wish you
guys the best on this project.

As in for rock linux i am no longer involved on it either.


kind regards

Miguel Bolanos (Mike1)
