I have yet to see him raise the issue that ia64 and powerpc are causing 
problems. I have yet to see him ask for help. There has been zero 
reaching me that indicated that the only solution to his problems, 
those may be, would be to drop ia64 and powerpc. This includes his 
to have a local patch after letting people know on the mailing list 
that he
will not be able to run it anymore.

This change was without warning and without cause. He unilaterally 
that the work and effort put in by others was beneath his attention and
concern by making the commit like this. And if des@ is incapable of 
even the
most basic forms of communication that he cannot express his 
predicament or
explain his reasons for this change and ask for input even after the 
then he shouldn't even be making commits in the first place.

I'm more than happy to work out how best to accomodate des@ and get the 
tinderbox runs somewhere else. Except that I'm currently not happy at 
with him. So first things first...
