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 H├Ąckel 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.
