Speaking from the point of view of a complete outsider who's been  
following the parrot development cycle, what you are saying is out-of- 
line, pretty trollish in itself, and completely untrue.

Allison's been regularly available on IRC (very easily checked here: http://irclog.perlgeek.de/search.pl?channel=parrot&nick=allison&q=) 
. She's writing a new parrot book. She's routinely working on  
concurrency (not an easy task).  She helps manage Trac.

I just don't understand.  You seem to want certain Trac privileges,  
and Coke responds with a way to get them and help out (open-source  
community spirit at work).  You then (1) implicitly admit you've  
burned bridges in response to Coke's suggestion, (2) turn down his  
offer indicating you're too busy, and (3) yet still insist on  
negatively lobbing stones from the sidelines with this post?

Please take this into a more positive direction.  From my point of  
view the parrot devs have bent over backwards to help you out.   
Allison's responded to you at least twice (once on-list, once off)  
indicating such, and she has made a very reasonable, architecture- 
based response to the patch on Trac 11 days ago.  You've been given  
several (positive) options in which to help out, yet you've refused.   
What else do you want?
