Looking at the recent burst of checkins for the Unicode implementation completely bypassing the standard SF procedure and possible comments I might have on the different approaches, I guess I've been ruled out as maintainer and designer of the Unicode implementation.
Well, I guess that's how things go. Was nice working for you guys, but no longer is... I'm tired of having to defend myself against meta-comments about the design, uncontrolled checkins and no true backup about my standing in all this from Guido.
Perhaps I am misunderstanding the role of a maintainer and implementation designer, but as it is all respect for the work I've put into all this seems faded. That's the conclusion I draw from recent postings by Martin and Fredrik and their nightly "takeover".
