I do sincerely appreciate you fixing the problem.

I'm overjoyed to hear that. Without an email from -infra, I don't know why
my access is being revoked, or who is doing it. 

Some ancient history: Over a year ago, -infra silently revoked my superuser
access to Gentoo's entire infrastructure, resulting in a long and painful
rift between you and me. We did finally resolve our differences, and I'm
thankful we did. A key part of our new working arrangement was that -infra
would _communicate_ with me and get my approval before revoking my access to
any part of Gentoo's infrastructure. 

If you guys are the ones revoking access, it is your responsibility to
communicate with me. It should not be my responsibility to track down
whoever revoked my access and find out why. I perceive that as rude
behavior, whether intended as such or not. Especially when we have discussed
this issue to death over a year ago, and have a clear and agreed-upon set of
procedures in place to handle this exact situation. 

Also, I've just resigned from the project in part due to burn-out and a
desire to not have to continually rehash these ultimately useless and
time-wasting issues, and that definitely affects my tolerance level when
they continue to come up.

I'm sorry we just had another mini-rift. As I said in my initial couple of
emails, please _communicate_ with me before making a decision to revoke my
access. Then infra is making a reasonable effort to act in good faith, and I
will respond to it in kind. And I apologize for my ranting.
