You missed the whole point there (a couple of times already :(),

The point with that thread was that you were looking for the solution of
a ATA driver thingy etc, which does not need to have a Wiki for it
because you need to discuss with the clueful people out there. Starting
a totally new project with new foundations etc DOES require such a Wiki
because you can easily outline your ideas / requirements there and allow
you and others to participate to generate code etc.

As I stated a couple of times before (perhaps hiddenly), please try to
research a bit more and -read- what is being told. Then sleep a day
over the issue and THEN email the rest to see what they think; you are
quite ambitious, which is appreciated, or at least I think that there
should be room for ambition all the time, but you are using it the wrong
way, causing people to ignore you (high sound / noise ratio) and there
goes the ambition, "lost" in space.

Dont do that to yourself or the project.
