In what way? Is this really an issue with me being unclear? I have explained
several times that I need to be able to access my spam rules and continue to
use drobbins@g.o.

Are you reading something else into the fact that I want to maintain my
drobbins@g.o email address, like maybe that I really don't want to
leave, or am planning to have some involvement in the NFP? I am only
guessing here, trying to understand what I perceive as very strange behavior
on the part of -infra.

I think I've explained them very clearly. Can you restore my access to so I can maintain my spam rules, which I rely on to not get
pummelled by tons of spam? You are aware that "drobbins@g.o" is
plastered all over the Internet, in my IBM dW and Intel articles, etc. etc.
This results in a a lot of spam. I periodically need to check for false
positives and update my spamassassin rules. As spamassassin is currently
active on my account (and I'd like to keep it this way to keep my email
productivity high) I do need to maintain my spam rules. Otherwise I am not
able to maintain my spam rules, and thus continue to use my email address
over the long term.

Yes, I did officially retire from my development role on the project, and as
Chief Architect. I also worked with Deedra regarding my subscriptions to the
various lists I have been on.

OK, but Corey, I am not just a "developer," and I also need to continue my
work to get this NFP set up, which is a process that takes time, and which I
am actively involved. I am also continuing to run the Gentoo store, right?, yes? Not many developers continue to run the Gentoo Store,
or are involved in setting up the official Gentoo NFP, are they? So, is it
in any way unreasonable or surprising that a email address is a
bit of a no-brainer here? Like I said earlier, maybe it's best to get
everything written down in an official agreement to avoid any confusion.

OK, in that case, can you or Kurt put your email replies on hold and take
5-10 seconds of your time to restore my access to I'm still
locked out.
