I assume this was in a personal message, or did I miss something?

I went through this a while back, with Theo. I think he tends to rub
a lot of people the wrong way. More than once have I gotten mail from
him which was not only unhelpful, but told me to in effect fuck off.
More than once. Recently, however, I've been too busy to actually
code for NetBSD in any meaningful manner, so there has been little
conflict. I don't know if that is because of lack of contact, Theo
calming down (apparently not...) or what.
Theo may be a super programmer, but his attitude really sucks at times.

I don't think this is right, either. You have gotten us a long way,
and I don't want to loose your talent. But I don't think loosing
Theo's is going to help either. I think someone needs to step in, who
knows more of the details. I do not wish to be that person, mind you.
