Mauro,

as far as you might remember, I started with the em2820 and took
Sascha Sommer's em2800 code. I was the one who contacted you for
merging that code and right why should anyone commit any code to you?
to loose the authority over his project?
There's enough documentation which initially was put up from my side
about that device.
Best would be to replace you as a maintainer since you don't have any
respect of others work either.
Companies should be aware that if they try to submit any code to you
they will loose the authority over _their_ work .. it's simple the
same game that you're playing now.

Markus
