Let me clarify this a bit. You are in a dispute over the maintainership of
kmail and you latest CVS commits seems to be an attempt to force a verdict in
this matter from the larger KDE community.
Based on the information that has been presented to me over the last few weeks
you have been the maintainer for KMail for a significant period. However, for
all practical matters, Michael Häckel has been the maintainer for the last
year or so. I do not have the impression that anyone other than you disputed
Michael's role as current maintainer.
You can consider the temporary suspension of your CVS access a preliminary
verdict by me in this matter. I suggest that both you and Michael present
your case in one single mail to the members of this mailinglist and then the
members of this list can voice their opinion in this matter. Hopefully that
leads to some sort of rough concensus, and if so, then I consider that to be
Alternatively, you can work out an amicable agreement with Michael.
