Can you elaborate what contributions have been censored and who has been locked out?
That probably did not happen intentionally and we should rule this out.
At least I have granted everybody who had commit rights to gitorious the same priviledges on SourceForge on request of that contributor.
I had loved to make this an automatic process but that was not possible because I couldn't match usernames between gitorious and SF.


A bit strong, for that I apologize

I am only responding to this now because it started this thread and either I got confused and cross posted a reply or slight of foot was at hand and Torsten's original post was relocated to this thread (not to be construed as a conspiracy theory).
I replied to you in the other thread where I thought it was originally posted. But here is what I said.

The only other thing I have to say, (I thought I already did but it was gone when I looked at this thread again), Torsten, you know what I am talking about. I don't think my reply ever made it to the board and yours is gone.
But what I said was basically, it had nothing to do with you or your administration of anything. It was one incident, the "dash" incident. I didn't agree with it, it sets a bad precedence.

To further expand on why I disagreed with this decision was I was under the impression this was a model of an actual scientific real life craft made by a University or students? Just the kind of thing I think FlightGear should be trying to attract. I didn't see it as being in a state that wasn't the same or better than others included in the repo. Just my opinion and I am not privy to any nuance in selection of what is allowed to be included.
It was just one indecent that I didn't agree with. Not really a basis for the strong language of censorship on my part, thus why I apologize and take that back.

I am two days behind in the discovery of this conversation and that is why I am answering this now.

All I really want to do from this point forward is get back to work.

Thank you for the clarification.
That closes the case for me.

Kind Regards,
Torsten - where development happens.
