Mark is not a core dev, cannot commit, and as far as I know, has never 
claimed such.  However, he has participated on the tracker, has reviewed 
patches, and has submitted patches, at least one of which has been 
committed.  His user name is BreamoreBoy and his tracker email is the 
same breamore@ address that recently upset you.  'BreamoreBoy' has been 
nosy on at least 1483 issues, over half as many as me.

You, as 'RantingRick' have opened 1 issue, quickly closed, but not 
posted under than name on any others.
You sent one patch to me which I applied.
Maybe there is some other activity that I missed.

I would prefer it if you both stopped snipping and sniping at each other.
